It'd be better to fix bconfig's LDAP_MOD_REPLACE.  That should work
like LDAP_MOD_ADD when the attribute is absent.  Haven't looked at
how easy that would(n't) be though.

No idea...

I like the consistency it gives as far as it goes - keep the presence of
the attrs independent of whether they were created over the protocol or
with slapd -f -F.  Except fix #2 doesn't do that since it won't know
whether to add them when creating an entry.  So in summary, no opinion:-)

Doesn't help preexisting cn=config directories.
