IMO there is no advantage.  The privileges would be
separate entries that would be stored as a bitmask
or an octet-string.  Nothing that you would be editing
via LDAP tools.

The main advantage of LDAP is to consolidate
information that is shared by 2 or more applications.
Storing users makes sense.  Storing privileges is just
using LDAP like a database.
