ITS#4556 ACLs for new entries

Revisiting this topic - DITStructureRules are not a solution to this problem. E.g. in cn=config, now that you can grant write access to arbitrary users, it becomes pretty critical to be able to prevent certain users from creating certain types of objects. E.g., I may want to allow someone to be able to create one type of child object under cn=config (e.g., databases) but not some other type (e.g., modules). So at the very least we need to be able to use ACL filters on new entries.
