The "lang" option in the config file should be the default lang and not

I don't think it appropriate for a matching rule's behavior to depend on the attribute description associated with the value (assuming there is an attribute description associated with the value), especially in situation where one description could be a subtype of another description. I think that would be pushing the X.500 directory information model beyond its established bounds.


But approximate matching is implementation-defined anyway, so I don't see that X.500 rules this out.
