DCE DNs have the leading slash, Active Directory domains do not;
instead they start with the DNS component of the DN (LSB to MSB)
followed by the less significant part of the DN (MSB to LSB)
separated by slashes.

See src/lib/xadcore/ds_names.c in ftp://ftp.padl.com/pub/XAD.tar.gz
for a sample implementation.

I think AD only uses them for display purposes anyway, so
a one-way mapping should be fine.
