If they obeyed the rules, they will never notice when OpenLDAP starts to 
enforce this.  OpenLDAP has steadily grown more forceful about people 
keeping the rules, the structureal/auxillary object class relationship is 
one example.

It is clear even in the definition of the rdn (attribute of the object 
that makes it unique within its context) that the rdn is a presentation in 
the dn of an existing attribute.
