The unix-users entry was created by a package called 
"directory_administrator", so, to be honest: it wasn't my idea. I just 
started to play with LDAP only yesterday ;-)

The other addressbook entry I created myself by trying to understand 
http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin20/guide.html section 8, but this is 
only one-day-playing knowledge.

So, what should I alter in the ldif to be upgrade-compatible? In Tony's 
posting he's talking about a "structuralObjectClass", that's an entry 
that is not present in version 2.0.23 AFAICS....
