OK. But if I take the word "generate" to include "send on the wire" than
I know of implementations that violate this statement from
As there is no requirement for
other names or alternative DN string representations to be recognized,
implementations SHOULD only generate DN strings in accordance with
Section 2 of this document.
That is, some implementations such as the Netscape Directory Server will
generate (send) DN strings that use attribute type names that are not
listed in the table that is in section 2.3 of the draft. These
implementations just send back whatever DN was stored at the time
entries were created, which is in fact what most users expect.
