That is an overpedantic check I was going to suggest for 2.3 because 
from postings I note that people are sometimes using fancy protocols in 
authz-regexp, and this could be misleading in the sense that the 
requested protocol has security implications which have plainly ignored 
by slapd.  There is no security issue, though, because all operations 
occur internally.

In any case by no means the change was intended for 2.2.  Sorry about 
that.  I suggest it's reverted, pending the consideration of its 
opportunity for 2.3 as well.
