Certainly a good document discussing LDAP basics might
benefit users of OpenLDAP Software....   if you want to write
something like this, go for it.  I'd suggest doing so as a
separate document.

Yes.  I meant it only as a starting point, as it contains
many of the terms one might one to define in a glossary.
While some of the tables now in the Appendix A may be
useful (like references), not sure if they all are.

Presently I'm thinking that the General LDAP FAQ is a good
place to develop a glossary.  I also think it best to write it
from scratch.  Many of definitions you referenced are pretty bad.
I rather base most of the definitions from the LDAP Technical
