Beyond present consideration, yes. It would be possible to push alias
processing into the frontend, but it would add a lot of overhead; the
frontend would need to keep a list of all DNs processed so that it could
prune duplicates and cycles. This would use up a lot more memory than just
the candidate ID lists that are currently used in the backend.
