There was a now-expired Internet Draft, draft-ietf-ldapext-cldap-00.txt.

LDAPv3 over UDP is supported by Active Directory (albeit only for
searching the root DSE); likely any revised document should align
itself with this protocol, which is more similar to the original
RFC 1798, and is widely deployed.

(OpenLDAP HEAD slapd supports "Microsoft" CLDAP; it is the default 
disposition for LDAPv3 over UDP. Look for LDAP_CONNECTIONLESS.)
