I do not think this is correct Andrew unless that is exactl what w2k
does. Ldap requires you (the client) to provide a cn attribute that
matches the rdn, and the schema module will check it is true or reject
the commit. I do not think autogenerating beyond stricter MS
compatibility is good. Of course f this is made by AD then I'm fine as
we need it for compatibility (but I think it is done only on a tiny
subset of object (defined by an object class) if any.

Is this really required ?

coherency checking should be handled by he schema module, no the rdn
module. It is ok to do it there for testing, but we will need to remove
it from the RDN so we should probably put that code inside an ifdef
block of some sort imho (something like: #ifdef COHERENCY_CHECK )
