Since hasSubordinates is a generated attribute, it would be filtered out
the consumer anyway. There's no reason to ever include it in replication
I'd concur, but syncprov_operational steps in even for regular operations
(correctly, because a client might want to see the contextCSN), and
duplicates the entry unnecessarily, as contextCSN could be appended to
sr_operational_attrs, unless it needs to be in the entry for some reason.
