Sorry, but this practice is inconsequent. The attributes are returned in LDAP
responses and therefore a client should be able to look up the attribute type
description in the schema e.g. to determine the syntax.

Some of the OIDs are now with .666 for years. Each time this topic is raised
nothing happens...
