G'Day Edgar,

Given the various bits of info above and in the public
WindowsServerDocs github repo, we have constructed the attached.   It
isn't perfect, but it shows that this is actually essentially covered
in the docs.  

You mentioned on or last call that you are happy to take suggestions
for improving the docs, and this is certainly an area we would like
improved.  That is, we would like to have something like this file
provided, just as the Display Specifiers and Schema have been provided,
as LDIF. 

(As I'm sure you know for full interoperability our standard is that we
need to be able to have the full set of matching objects.)  

Otherwise, would it be possible to add a reference, informative or
normative to resources like:

That would allow this existing content to be captured under the license
for our use, which would be very helpful.
