As usual, the privilege of the rootdn consists in bypassing ACLs.  In
this case, you just need the rootdn, it doesn't need to be able to bind
(i.e. no rootpw and no fancy SASL rules to map someone with that
identity), since it will only be used for internal purposes, namely to
look up where bdb custom monitoring will be placed.
