There is a very good reason not to generate these operational
attributes.  They are defined as not being user modifiable,
hence back-ldap will get nothing but errors when it sends
them to the remote server.

We likely should have a backend flag which indicates whether
lastmod on (or lastmod off) is supported by the backend (so
the frontend can complain if inappropriately configured.
