If index DNs are validated and canonicalized before being written, then
I guess it really doesn't make much sense re-validating on read given
the performance penalties. Do we have the guarantee they are properly
vetted before being written ?
I ask because the comment in the bug seem to implay we have 'bad'
provision creating some bad index, and that is certainly not acceptable
