In LDAP, you only get what you ask for. I think this gives us great
opportunities to provide administrators, without modification of
binaries or low-level commands, the ability to access information they
We can (and probably should) mark these as operational attributes, but I
don't see any reason why we can't expose them. Perhaps you understand
the compatibility problems better than I do.
I think we will have plenty of extra logic in the replication
implementation, that dealing with/mapping a few extra attributes won't
be too hard (particularly if we use different names).
