I think you mean "anywhere in your Dit";  "anywhere in your DSA" doesn't
make much sense,

I think you mean "in any container".

And you're wrong, they need to be below the search base used by NSS for
the appropriate object type - groups, person, etc...  You can only put
them anywhere if you are using the root of the Dit as your search base
which is generally inadvisable for a number of reasons.

Same, we've written .NET (Mono) 'scripts' for doing this.
