In my case the behaviour is pollution my data with unneeded and unwanted
data in ous which I want to prevent. I don't have control over the
clients so sadly I cannot fix the source of the problem (the requests).
The PWDFAILURETIME (and PWDACCOUNTLOCKEDTIME) is only useful when there
is a userPassword: attribute ( when using pwdAttribute: userPassword). Is
there any chance that the behaviour is accepted as a problem?
Maybe you got me wrong: I don't have a really strong opinion on that (nor am
I the one who decides on this).
The question is: What should the pwdFailureTime exactly mean?
I understand what's your personal opinion on that and I somewhat support it.
But there might be corner-cases where the current behaviour makes sense.
