Re: authmeth - user & client usage
I've reviewed my use of the terms application, user, and client in -09
and think things are looking pretty good. In particular, I've removed
all uses of application except in the definition of user.

Actually, it's confusing to use "application" to refer to an
"implementation" and, even more so, just to client implementations.
Here is, I think, a good example of an appropriate use of the
term application (in the context of LDAP specifications):
PKI is an application of the directory which places
specific requirements upon clients and servers implementations.
