Defining/using auxiliary objectclass - how?

Some tutalage please.  Trying to grok this without great success.

OpenLDAP admin guide, section discusses auxiliary object
classes, and states:
"To define an auxiliary object class which allows myPhoto to be added to
any existing entry."

My initial reading of this was that such a class would "mix in" without
requiring the auxiliary objectclass to be explicitly added to each
object.  This doesn't seem to work... I get attribute violations loading
stuff, until I explicitly name the aux class in the LDIF object.

Am I misunderstanding this?

For reference, using the latest 2.0.23 OpenLDAP release, with something
that looks like:

   objectclass ( NAME 'QurisMixin'
        DESC  'mix in Quris enterprise attributes'
        SUP top AUXILIARY
        MAY ( accountdisabled $ yahoomessengerid ) )

(originally tried it without the "SUP top", with same unhelpful result.)
Thanks in advance.
