So you mean adding a response control value made of something like

controlValue ::= SEQUENCE {
	extended	extendedDN

extendedDN ::= SEQUENCE {
	attrval		attrVal

attrVal ::= {
	attrspec	attrSpec,
	value		octetString

where the sequence of attrSpec was specified in the control request.  In

entryDN.  Is this what you mean?  Then, it would be the client's task to 
use the response to build a string in the format specified by
