Does it mean that it will one day supported,
It means that the OpenLDAP server does not support subtree renaming.
or it's something that LDAP
isn't supposed to do at all?
Some LDAP servers do support subtree renaming.
Should this task of recursively renaming the dn be done by the server,
or the client?
Depends on the LDAP server. Note that implementing a sub-tree renaming
on the client side is not trivial (transactional handling, error
handling, massive recursion).
