Re: (ITS#5296) Search netgroup by triple don't report existing entry

Our purpose is to deliver an LDAP implementation that complies strictly with
the existing specs; that's the only way to guarantee interoperability.
Altering the files we bundle to be non-compliant with the published specs is
always a bad idea. If you find that some schema is deficient, as is the case
with the RFC2307/NIS schema, the correct solution is to fix the spec first.
