The MS-ADTS document, section Extended Access checks lists
attributes over which "Access is never granted.".  Naturally this makes
them harder to inspect to determine their format.  What is the format of
these attributes when synced via DRS (which does permit their access)?
I'm picking on this table because almost all these attributes listed
here as 'access is never granted' are in some way complex in their
representation (because they deal with passwords and similar
information), but most (all?) are described simply as 'octect string' in
the documentation.

No, see my revised attempt.
