Could you please elaborate on which specific problems you see with
cosine.schema shipped with OpenLDAP (despite the outdated comment and
I've re-checked RFC again, and you are correct. Judging by Appendix A, I
probably got confused by X.500 names and LDAPs shortened ones, as I'm
looking for solution/ideas in both [LDAP/X.500 RFCs].
I find no excuse resp. I can't explain my confusion. It felt like some
objects/attributes are missing resp. some new attributes were added by
RFC 4524, but I see I was wrong.
I can say many excuses, but it won't change the fact-
I'm sorry for [pointless] question then.
