(ITS#4412) why require authentication for modifications?

I think that the restriction imposed by OpenLDAP that anonymous users can never
change the directory is arbitrary. I want to set up a shared address book in a
small, friendly environment where simplicity is important. Having to remember
yet another password for changing address book entries is something I'd like to
avoid. If I grant write access to "*" and not "users", I'd like OpenLDAP to
trust my judgement rather than effectively change my configuration file. Could
this be changed in future releases? Thanks.
