I came to think about this possiblity today myself; If the replica binddn
only has write access to certain attributes on the slave, would this
work as expected? 

Something like this springs to mind (slave config):

access to attrs=maillocaladdress,rfc822mailmember,cn,uid
	by dn="cn=repl,dc=acme,dc=org" write
	by * read

access to *
	by * read

Or would slurpd fail when it has no access to modify other attributes
on the slave? I.e. if only maillocaladdress is changed, it is successful.
If maillocaladdress and loginShell were changed at the same time,
there would be a conflict and the "transaction" would fail?
