Ok, thanks for the clarification.   That's what I needed to know.

The only limitation would be that you could not mdb_copy a 2.5 database and
run that under a 2.4 slapd.  Since it's purely internal, the replication
protocol has no "knowledge" of it, and it would not appear in an LDIF
created by slapcat.
