Unfortunately, I think the spec is broken here. There's no way for the

sense for the provider to send the references uninterpreted, as regular LDAP

Any suggestions?

Discussed this a bit with Kurt. The ContentSync protocol is not solely a DSA-DSA sync protocol. When used as such, the consumer is responsible for sending the ManageDSAiT control with its sync request, to make sure that it receives actual entries, and not search references. HEAD has been patched accordingly.
