Only the first is defined for use in LDAP by RFC 2252 [in
section 6]. The others are defined elsewhere. That is, the
table contains a list of syntaxes defined 'thus far', it is
not their specification.
Only the syntaxes defined in RFC 2252, Section 6 and RFC 2256,
Section 6 should be described in RFC 2252bis. The specification
of these syntaxes should be clarified as to their ASN.1 data type
definition, but no new syntaxes can be added.
