Definitely take this to a mailinglist.  openldap-technical, I guess.

I haven't tested, but the server shouldn't apply the filter to referral
objects either.  The referred-to server will apply the filter.  As far
as I understand, the baseDN and scope says what to search, while the
filter is applied to candidate entries for being returned to the user.

My guess is you need another approach entirely.  Keep the concepts
separate - if something is called an "alias" in Samba or whatever,d
that doesn't mean it makes sense to use an alias in LDAP.
