Re: Protocol Information Syntax
I believe that Steven's reason for bringing up this issue is that fixing
up this incompleteness in 2252's successor would require adding the
Protocol Information syntax that does not appear in 2252, and we have set
in this WG a policy of not adding new items to our core documents. If we
remove these items from the ldapbis documents, and your clients need these
them specified in an RFC, a separate RFC can be written to do this.
This is our approach with the X.509-related elements.
