Hello andrew,

following our talks about this script I looked a bit more at linked 

I found those "forward" link attributes:

bridgeheadTransportList fRSMemberReference frsComputerReference 
hasMasterNCs hasPartialReplicaNCs managedBy manager member 
nonSecurityMember owner privilegeHolder queryPolicyObject 
serverReference siteObject msCOM-PartitionLink 
msCOM-UserPartitionSetLink msDFSR-ComputerReference 
msDFSR-MemberReference msDS-AuthenticatedAtDC msDS-HasDomainNCs 
msDS-hasFullReplicaNCs msDS-hasMasterNCs msDS-KrbTgtLink 
msDS-MembersForAzRole msDS-NC-RO-Replica-Locations msDS-NonMembers 
msDS-ObjectReference msDS-OperationsForAzRole msDS-OperationsForAzTask 
msDS-PSOAppliesTo msDS-TasksForAzRole msDS-TasksForAzTask 
msSFU30PosixMember netbootServer

Not all of them are used it seems (at least right now)
I also found that some other attributes use extended DN like dMDLocation 
or objectCategory and they are not link attribute but we have to take 
care of them (at least when upgrading a provision without extended DN).

It seems that we can have extended DN in all attributes that have the DN 
syntax (attributeSyntax=
It gives (without back/forward linked attributes):

It seems a bit overkill but I have the impression that there is no
