This ITS still appears to me to be invalid. bconfig treats all siblings *of 
the same type* as a single ordering. Your demonstration code is claiming your 
entries are all of the same type, even though they aren't. I.e., all entries 
in cn=config of a given type have only one distinguished naming attribute. You 
have used olcTestAttrOne and olcTestAttrTwo for the same type, so cn=config 
doesn't distinguish them in its sort order.
