Interesting how this question is hitting a number of different mailing lists…
Here’s an edited extract of an email I’ve sent yesterday on OpenDJ mailing list:
It was also used by a Sun product (Delegated Administration) with another definition and semantic.
This is why we choose in Sun Directory Server, OpenDS and now OpenDJ to have a properly defined attribute with a different name: isMemberOf, operational and read-only.
My 2 cents,

'isMemberOf' is used on Sun/Oracle DSSE, Netscape/Fedora/389-DS and OpenDS/OpenDJ.
'memberOf' was originally defined in MS Active Directory and is used as
default in slapo-memberof. It's configurable though.
