The relevant portion of the technical specification X.501(93)
which describes the X.500 models used in LDAP.  There are
(at least) three basic reasons for this behavior:

1) user application data is, just that, data which is maintained
   by user applications;

2) it is not feasible to ensure referential integrity across
   the distributed DIT;

3) a single update to the directory changes the contents
   of a single entry.
