Quickly, I can say that 2.2 is much more strict about what objects you 
put into it and I believe how the objects are defined.  If this is the 
only thing you had complain going between the two, be happy ;)  When we 
made this switch we had inetOrgPerson and posixAccount in the same 
objects which didn't play nicely together in 2.whateverwewentto, I think 
it was 2.1.

Basically 2.0 will let you just slap any old object class together and 
call it a day, 2.2 is requiring you to flesh out the object inheritance 
more.  You're just explicitly stating what 2.0 is taking for granted or 
not caring about at all.
