I'm not sure that this is the case.  The single-value checks on
userPassword are important, because we intercept, but don't store, that

Also, while clearTextPassword is not normally an externally set
attribute, we have to check it's validity because we don't currently
have a control on that. 

Even for the other attributes, while they may be checked for
single-value status later, I think it's too late.
