I think I'm aware of all those issues.  One major point for spending 
some time on this issue is that I happen to need supporting few clients 
that want to use this feature.  I'll do my best to persuade the 
implementors of those clients that supporting content synchronization 
and/or accesslog as currently implemented in OpenLDAP is way much 
better, but unfortunately I have no control on that, and it's very 
unlikely that they will, based on the usual refrain "changelog is the de 
facto standard" or things like that.
