Re: able to add an entry without parent
I think the !be-is_root() check should be removed.
The server should, within a naming context, ensure
that each entry has a parent. The parent-less
add should only be allowed (subject to access controls)
when the entry is the context prefix (or, as a special
case, when the entry DN has only one RDN and the
context prefix is the empty DN).
