While the <descr> form is generally preferred when the usage is
restricted to short names referring to object identifiers which
identify like kinds of objects (e.g., attribute type descriptions,
matching rule descriptions, object class descriptions), the <numericoid>
form should be used when the object identifiers may identify multiple
kinds of objects or when unambiguous short name (descriptor) is not
When the <descr> form is used, the representation SHALL be considered
invalid if the usage is not restricted as discussed above or the
implementation cannot determine unambiguously which object identifier
the <descr> refers to.
