What made you think that the "lDAPDisplayName" generator was required
here?  What tests failed without this in place?

This is the code to handle replication of objects with DRS, and is used
to fill out 'cn', 'ou', 'dc' etc from the marked RDN attribute when
replicating from another domain controller over LDAP.  It has nothing to
do with the generation of an lDAPDisplayName for a new schema element.  

Also, when changing any of the code in the replication area, you need to
do a full vampire and 'dcpromo' test from a Windows client.  (It may not
always pass the dcpromo, but the results and from that and proposed
changes should be discussed with one of those on the team involved in
that code). 

(I have also the RPC-DSSYNC test, which when operational should also
detect this kind of mistake)

Please revert.
