Ok, but we should mention this somewhere like in the admin guide perhaps.

Eh, I'm not sure it should be in the man page. The point is, if you ever
want guaranteed atomic writes, you have to use slapo-accesslog to serialize
them. That's an issue that affects other LDAP servers as well.
AS Pierangelo said:
There is no guarantee of DSA-wide or even database-wide atomicity in write
operations, including internal ones. This was never even intended to be in
place. This is a known design limitation not only of slapo-unique, but
also of slapd (and, I'd say, of LDAP itself).
