Revisiting this topic - DITStructureRules are not a solution to this problem.
E.g. in cn=config, now that you can grant write access to arbitrary users, it
becomes pretty critical to be able to prevent certain users from creating
certain types of objects. E.g., I may want to allow someone to be able to
create one type of child object under cn=config (e.g., databases) but not some
other type (e.g., modules). So at the very least we need to be able to use ACL
filters on new entries.
