Let me restate: If "reside in a separate DIT" means a separate database this would be an awkward requirement.
I'd rather like to see another parameter which controls for which entries the constraints are enforced applicable within the same database. Similar to parameters unique_uri and/or unique_base of slapo-unique.
Indeed, that could be useful. It would probably be useful for several of the overlays.
It would be even more useful to have a generic config feature for this purpose, so that it doesn't need to be explicitly coded for each overlay. The most logical approach would be to implement subentry support, and tie their subtree search specifications into these functions. You're welcome to submit a patch with this implementation.
