Why not? Aside from the fact that it is difficult to lock, are there other reasons?

Because 1) it's difficult to lock and 2) time to update will be slower than memory or even accessing a flat file. If you're adding a lot of new entries, you'd be simultaneously updating this other entry for each one, essentially doubling your load on the directory server. Don't forget: add/update entry => update indices.
