Re: (ITS#3633) slapd.access man page inaccuracy

I don't know if we really want to document all these
variants, most of which exist only valid for historical
reasons.   The idea, I think, is to let them slowly
die.  That is, I think attr is not listed in slap.access(5)
as intended.

It should be noted that documenting "attr" would require
more than this change.  There would need to be change to the
corresponding prose, as well as to the usage output of
slapd(8) itself... and likely the admin guide and FAQ, too.

Personally, I rather either do nothing here or just note
that there exists some aliases for historical purposes
without actually listing what those aliases are.
