I take it making the time zone optional is too big a change for ldapbis?
How about allowing servers to support local time, but not demainding it?
Or does X.500 disallow local time too? I've looked at X.500, but all I
could find was X.520 6.3.3 'Generalized Time Match' which refers to
clauses 34.3 b) or c) of CCITT Rec. X.208 | ISO/IEC 8824.
