Thinking back, I think the idea here is that you might have a set of nested 
databases connected by referral entries. E.g.,

database ldbm
suffix dc=sub,dc=example,dc=com

database ldbm
suffix dc=example,dc=com

If you had an referral entry in the superior DB that pointed to the sub 
database, you would need the manageDSAit control to be able to operate on the 
referral entry.

None of this really makes sense post 2.1 since subordinate/glue makes it
