Are you forgetting the "attr" option in the 2.1 replica clause?

And to tie this back to the original question - you can certainly point your
clients at a back-ldap that has been configured with the info it needs to
bind to the real directory. Of course, if the back-ldap allows anonymous
clients to query it, this isn't any more secure than before. It's even worse,
actually, and your traffic is still in the clear instead of encrypted...
