I'm not necessarily saying that. For the problem you highlight, setting
would cure it (one could only add an entry and authorize as that entry, but not add an
entry and use it to authorize as some other existing one).
What I'm saying that apparently the "right" manner to handle the problem
pose consists in implementing DIT content rules.
ditContentRules and ditStructutreRules don't give you the fine-grained control
that's required here.
I think Emmanuel's patch looks correct, and the corresponding patch needs to
be made for a lot of other backends.
