That's why I need composed attributes, each one of that works have their

You could, but it would then be up to your client application to parse
the result correctly and return the results that you want.
LDAP is always best where only one single value is returned for a
lookup. By using multi-value attributes, your client application has to
be able to cope with these. An example of an application that may or may
not be able cope is Postfix using LDAP "maps", that expects a single
value as result of a lookup, *unless* a comma-separated list is
acceptable (i.e. a mailing list with a single CN attribute). For many
Postfix lookups, a comma-separated list is not acceptable.
Otherwise, as David says, use a RDB.
