[fotis@xos.nl: bug/typo in RFC2256?]

This is only FYI.

I have the impression that some LDAP implementations can get confused
and "hide" data within the double-defined preferredDeliveryMethod attribute.

BTW. The same attribute is also double in objectclass "residentialPerson"

Dear Mark et al,

while investigating the organizationalRole objectclass,
through the nice web interface at http://ldap.akbkhome.com,
I found, to my surprise, "preferredDeliveryMethod" being defined twice.

I traced it back and saw that it is defined in RFC2256, exactly as such.
It is even a SINGLE-VALUE field, which means that it has to be corrected.

Even the default OpenLDAP's schemas have it like this,
so I presume the rest of the LDAP world has now to fix this minor typo...
