Re: IETF ldapbis WG Last Call:draft-ietf-ldapbis-user-schema-05.txt
I have reviewed the user-schema draft, and have the following comments:
2.5 * upper bound on 'description' attribute is 1024. Any chance of relaxing that value? I know X.520 specifies this limit, so it probably isn't too likely, but it would be nice. (I know we can't really change this, but I just had to ask anyway.)
2.18 * 'name' upper bound is shown as 32768. The 93 version of the X.520 document I have access to lists ub-name value twice, with values of 64 and 32768. But the 2001 version of the doc only has the value listed as 64. This does seem overly restrictive to me, so is this intended to be the 32K value instead of 64?
2.16 * 'l' and 2.33 - 'st' * both inherit from 'name' with its limit. Most of the other items that inherit from 'name' either have the same upper bound defined in X.520, or don't even have their own upper bound definition, just inheriting the value from 'name'. However, both 'l' and 'st' have explicit upper bounds of 128 given in X.520 (Annex C). Is there any way to specify that in the definition given here?
3.2 - "C" - If we are deprecating the 'searchGuide' attribute, why is it still part of the Country definition (and enhanceSearchGuide is not?)
3.4 * "domain" * ditto for 'teletexTerminalIdentifier' being deprecated.
3.8 * "organization" * since it has the identical set of attributes in the MAY list as "organizationalUnit", and the list of attributes on "organizationalUnit" appear to be listed in alphabetical order, why is the same list of attributes given in apparently random order for "organization"?
Generally speaking, is there some reason not to list the attributes of a class definition in alphabetical order?
