Here is a start... 
# $1 prefix
# $2 user
# $3 domain
# $4 owner
# $5 reseller
access to dn="(.+,)?o=(.+),ou=users,o=(.+),ou=domains,o=(.+),ou=owners,o=(.+),ou=resellers,o=root"
        by dn="(((o=$2,ou=users,)?o=$3,ou=domains,)?o=$4,ou=owners,)?o=$5,ou=resellers,o=root" write
        by dn="o=root,ou=control,o=root" write
        by dn="o=support,ou=control,o=root" read

Once you figure out how this one works (assuming I got it right :-), then
the others should be rather straight forward to derive...
