Please add the liberal behaviour again even though this might hurt 
your "LDAPv3 eyes".

These kind of pseudo-OIDs "objectClassName-oid" are used in 
Netscape/iPlanet Directory Server and Novell eDirectory. It will 
be unpossible to implement schema-aware LDAP applications with the 
current behaviour.

IMHO an application should treat OIDs of object classes opaque 
anyway. Therefore it would not hurt.
