(ITS#6055) Samba4 need 'name' implementation like AD (RDN-Name)

Active Directory always presents an attribute 'name' that is always equal to the
relative distinguished name.  AD allows only one RDN, but I don't mind if this
can be multi-valued for the multi-RDN case.  It is equal to the value of the RDN
as presented in the RDN.

This is not simply the subtype 'CN -> name', but a new attribute unrelated to
the existing definition of 'name'.

I don't care what name is assigned to 'name', as I can easily remap attributes.

It would be great if this could be constructed such that it may be declared to
be unique for a particular one-level search (also an AD requirement, but not one
Samba4 requires or enforces at this time).
