See my comment above; ldap.conf(5) sounds like a good place to put 
parameters that existing applications wouldn't allow.  Maybe allowing 
things like timeouts as user-only would be a solution, since a user can 
force LDAPCONF for specific applications and alter their behavior.

By now, I'd remove the RESTART option but leave the NETWORK_TIMEOUT in
