Sorry, I missed the referrals part of your posting.
At a first glance yes, you should be able to do something
similar by means of referrals; I'm not so good at playing
with referrals, though. The point is that with
referrals the client is responsible of following them;
with the "meta" solution the fact that your DIT is
divided in different backends is hidden behind the
"meta"; you can make it very efficient by using "ldapi://"
instead of "ldap://"; if it resides on the same host of the
hidden backends and so.
