RE: Storing references...

No, not alias object. As far as I understood from alias object, if I use
alias instead of complete DN and if I delete this entry which has reference
to original object then the original object also gets deleted !!!
	I have a structure wherein I have all users defined under "Employee"
node. When I declare different modules, I specify all users having access to
that perticular module. If I use alias here and lateron try to remove any
user from the module then it'll delete that user from original list under
"Employees" !!!

Please, Correct me If I'm wrong !!

A referral (as I understand it) refers a query to another partition of
the Dit.

I think what you really want is an alias object.
