Actually, that creates an "alternative name".  Aliasing implies
the server might do fancy rewriting of input, filters, attribute

I would expect this if you asked for only deliveryprogrampath.

With the attached testsuite entry, this command:
	ldapsearch -L -b "..." (objectclass=*) pager fax

	dn: cn=Ursula Hampster, ou=Alumni Association, ou=People, o=University 	of Michigan, c=US
