Syntax of ldabeledURI (ITS#1040)

The syntax of the labeledURI attribute in OpenLDAP 2.0.7 is IA5 String. This 
precludes us from using any Umlauts (öäü) in the label. RFC2073 states that 
instead of HTML escapes ("ä") T.61 should be used to represent non-ASCII 
characters. Since LDAPv3 uses UTF-8 I suggest that the syntax of labeledURI is 
changed to Directory String and the matching rule to caseExactMatch:

attributetype ( NAME 'labeledURI'
        DESC 'RFC2079: Uniform Resource Identifier with optional label'
        EQUALITY caseExactMatch
        SYNTAX )
