For clarity I do agree that a control should exist to bypass uniqueness
(and other) constraints.  However I think manageDSAit is not the
appropriate control by its definition, and also in practice given the
fact it's set per default by popular client libs.

Relax Rules seems much more appropriate for this use case, as it's intended
to temporarily relax database constraints, for administrative use only.

No, then I would need to change the server config to disable that option
each time I'd wish to temporarily bypass the constraint, instead of using
another dedicated control for that (which would need no disable option).
