The same criterion apply to Attribute add: you cannot add a value
if values already exist and there is no equality rule.  The only
thing you can do is delete all the existing values and re-add them
together with the new one(s).

I don't remember where it is specified (you may want to browse thru
some rfc 225* for that) but that's what slapd code actually does.
