Hmm.. this occurred to me too, indeed I thought that was part of the point
of moving the meta-schema info into the directory itself. How much does the
subschema subentry actually encompass?

Moving configuration details into LDIF/directory would be nice too for
server 'introspection' (to hijack the Java term).

<brainstorm>The gated/BIND8 configuration file format is pretty generic. I
imagine, altho' haven't thought too hard, that it would handle ACL well.
