That's why I said "treated as" X-ORDERED (when occurring in cn=config).
If that's too cumbersome though:

An attribute private to OpenLDAP should have a prefix like "olc",
but an RFCed attribute must wait till (X-)ORDERED is standardized.

I suggest "olc-note", then.  Still stands out from the rest since the
others do not use hyphens, and also sorts it before the other "olc"s.
