slapd(8) guarantees not to rely on the order in which values
are presented as elements of a set have no intrinsic order.
Other LDAP software should make the same guarantee.  

That is, slapd(8) does not care about the order of values
as, by specification, there is none.  slapd(8) does not to
define an ordering of elements in a SET OF AttributeValues
and, hence, makes no attempt to maintain that order or
any other perceived ordering.
