Personally, I think they should not be listed as that would
require implementations to recognize additional names. Multiple
names leads to interoperability problems as it is inevitable
that some implementations will not recognize all of them.
Certainly LDAP implementations are allowed to recognize
additional names... but they should not assume others do.
