I don't think this was __ever__ accepted, since LDAP syntaxes don't have
the notion of names; they're only recognized by OID.

This is not a name: it's an OID built on top of an OID macro.  I think
directly using an OID macro in general might be confusing with respect
to descriptive names.  I understand this should not be the case with
syntaxes, as they cannot have descriptive names.
