X.520 defines the ProtocolInformation ASN.1 data type, but not
how to encode that data type in LDAP. If the specification
of the LDAP-specific encoding form is absent from the existing
"core", we should avoid adding it to the revised "core".

RFC 2252 provided a LDAP native string encoding for Directory
String and incorporated the ASN.1 by reference. Nothing "new"
with Directory String.

The "new" in the ProtocolInformation case is addition of
LDAP native string encoding.
