A couple have been devised, yes.  Sun and UMich, at least, have  
implemented incremental propagation schemes.  We're looking into the  
possibility of integrating an implementation into a future release,  
though I couldn't tell you at this point when it might be released.

Also, Novell has contributed an LDAP-based database back end for the  
KDC, with which one can implement replication at the LDAP layer.   
That's shipping in our current release.
