Ok, RFC 2251, line 1815ff:

   - modification: A list of modifications to be performed on the entry.
     The entire list of entry modifications MUST be performed
     in the order they are listed, as a single atomic operation.  While
     individual modifications may violate the directory schema, the
     resulting entry after the entire list of modifications is performed
     MUST conform to the requirements of the directory schema.

The "may" clearly says that the server has to accept a delete and a
later add of the attribute.
