This is a bit confusing; while RFC2251 says:

   "This protocol is designed to run over connection-oriented,
   reliable transports [...]" (5.2)

It also says:

  "If the LDAP session is operating over a connection-oriented
  transport such as TCP [...]" (4.5.2)

  "When used with a connection-oriented transport [...]" (7)

which seem to suggest that there is or could be such a thing as
CLDAPv3. And the description of the ldapext IETF working group
mentions "defining transport of the LDAPv3 protocol over
connectionless UDP transport". There is even an Internet-Draft about
this (expired since long ago though). Is this project abandoned for
good or just dormant?
