Why can't openldap sort on createtimestamp?

We can, of course. I assume you're talking about client side sorting.

I believe I'm talking about server side sorting, which appears to work fine for any attribute that is assigned an ordering matching rule and indexed. If this is not done for 'createtimestamp' because operational attributes are handled differently, or if you need to enforce a "standard track schema" that doesn't specify ordering, then I understand.
