Sounds OK if a bit inconsistent - which makes me wonder: Has back-config made it easier to allow databases to come in any order in slapcd.onf?

It can make things different, not sure that it's any easier. I.e., instead of doing suffix validation in the config entry point, you do it in the db_open entry point. That way you can configure multiple DBs as desired, but then error checking comes much later.
