Hm, okie.  So, then from what you are saying, if I have this right:

We want suRegid to have to contain these 3 objectclasses:

(cutting out the ones prior to suPerson based on what you note above about 

Since the add we are doing is only putting in entries from the suPerson 
object class, suPerson is the only one being put in place when we do the 
add.  What we want, is when an suRegID is created by our person creation 
object, is that all those above objectclasses MUST be a part of the suRegID 
entry, or it will fail.  And I see your point about the MUST on suPerson 
being incorrect.  Is there anyway to enforce that an add must include those 
3 objectclasses for the suRegID?
