This is a technical description.

Currently I can't imagine a use-case for this particular violation of
constraints. Do you have one? Just an example?

I'm not sure. See, I try to support Relax Rules control in web2ldap. If
the control is in effect the behaviour of the UI has to be heavily
changed. I even considered proposing a that the Relax Rules control
should have different values for specifying what particular constraint
shall be relaxed.

Yes. I'm more concerned about complexity in a UI frontend.
