The Admin Guide is correct here. We have never advised people against this.

You're confused. The above text refers to the rootdn on the consumer, not the 
identity the consumer uses to talk to the provider.

Note that the example at the top of the page shows the appropriate limit 

I think the organization of this chapter is wrong, it should not start with 
section 17.1 describing how to use syncrepl to replace slurpd before it 
describes syncrepl (section 17.2).
