Re: (ITS#4620) ORDERING support for builtin attributes uidNumber and gidNumber

The definitions in the current code come directly from RFC2307. They 
cannot be changed. I note that the definitions still lack ORDERING rules 
in RFC2307bis. If you want a change like this to be made, I suggest you 
lobby the RFC authors, once they agree to change the spec then we'll 
change the code to match. Until then, this patch should be rejected.
