Not if it is a mandatory field ... this is why I always leave them in.
Furthermore, programs who read these fields maybe expect an empty string
in stead of no field at all, and since I had to replace the netscape
with an openldap very sneekily, this was my first priority.
Btw, something I forgot to say : netscape by default does not do a
strict schemachecking, and openldap does, so if you have some
groupofnames or groupofuniquenames, make sure you at least have one
member or uniquemember !
