Nothing. But it's more cumbersome. Also comments are lost. Normally I comment
everything and describe for which requirement in the concept the ACLs,
constraints, etc. are for.
Also the schema with X-ORDERED is cumbersome. There's no LDAP client which
really supports it. You have to do too much manually.
All of the X-ORDERED stuff can be ignored in the general case. If you find it
cumbersome, you're doing something wrong. Obviously the ldapmodify commandline
tool supports it.
There's no mechanism like include.
False. OpenLDAP's LDIF library supports include directives, and they're used
frequently in the test suite. The include statement has been documented in the
ldif(5) manpage since 2006.
You're blaming the tools when it's your own ignorance at fault.
