Thanks Andrew - especially for the corrections.

Just to clarify, the document was never meant to be standalone; it is basically a set of notes I took during running down parameter storage. I do have more work to do before submitting the contained information as a change proposal for [MS-NRPC].

Of course, I do have more work to do before that, and I will keep you advised as I progress.

This is looking good, and seems quite a reasonable way to approach the problem.  A few errors (just because I'm picky :-):

1.1 You give a lot of detail about accountName, except the actual attribute.
1.3 DomainName is not stored in the DC attribute - this is just the first component of the domain name.

The example objects are not the most useful thing - if they are just un-annotated LDIF pastes. (I can usually find them by a simple search on my test DC, but probably do help the hypothetical target of a independent developer not performing network analysis).

I do look forward to the completed document.
