Yes, this is the correct way to authenticate against an LDAP directory.
As you say, it requires no privileged access to the directory beyond
that granted to the authenticating user.

This normal behaviour (bind as authenticating user) is available in the
current development tree of Koha 3.x, and is not yet in any stable
release TTBOMK.
