I've retried to work on making this dynamic it turns out not to be very 
simple as doing a search with a guid at the very beginning (well when we 
are searching for the DN of dsServiceName for instance) is not working 
not because of indexes as I thought but just because the whole samdb is 
not assembled yet and search are directed to sam.ldb instead of the 
correct partition ldb (ie. CN=Configuration,DC=domain,DC=tld).

There must be a solution but it's might not be obvious, further more I 
would argue that I made this patch with metze and so the idea of 
modifying directly rootdse didn't sound wrong to him (at least at this 
time). Also I think that's important to release this patch at a 
milestone as running the update script is mandatory and it will easier 
to pass this message at a milestone than between two milestones.
