When we introduced Electronic Registration here I setup a trust between the two domains. Teachers get a 'hidden' mapping to the S: drive which enables SIMS to launch.
Have moved all the users of the Admin Domain now, setup a seperate OU structure with Loop Back for all the Admin Machines so they behave differently regardless of your login.
Plan is to flatten the Domain eventually, may do it over the Summer break when we need to go to SQL2008 which will involve me getting a Capita engineer in for the day to assist in ensuring all goes well.
Acording to Becta guidance combining the two networks / crossing over is OK. At least thats what our LEA says

The rest of us get peanuts by the way.
