I'm so sorry: I misread this as "Users must have at least the uidNumber 
and gidNumber attribute set", which is of course *not* what it says.  
Hence the text is accurate (if you read it correctly); it's my brain 
which is at fault.

I do still think that the alternative text I gave is clearer - for my 
brain anyway :-)
