In the case of our UI, we don't even present the entries or attributes as is to the user but in an "abstracted" way.
They may not even know it's read/stored internally from/as attributes or entries.

So, yeah, so it's not so *bad*.
It's more of an implementation tuning I wish would have not been required, because the modification seemed harmless and legit (according to LDAP standards).
