The proposed change wouldn't affect existing installations. You would have
to add in a  "limits dn.anonymous" directive to your slapd.conf to get
anonymous binds to be limited differently than default limits. It is that
way now with non-anon binds: they get set to default unless you add a
"limits dn.[exact|regex]" directive.   I'd list this proposal under "new
feature which people can turn on with slapd.conf"

If no anon limits are set, the defaults apply, just like with exact and
regex limits.
