DN question?

Hello All
Wanted to get an idea of what is the thought process out there in deciding on a DN? I am specifically curious about DN of format uid=<id>,ou=users,o=abc (flater) vs. uid=<id>,ou=<mydept>,o=abc (with one or more flexible OUs).
I have seen the flatter kind more so than the latter, as there are less dependcies on keeping DN sync with various application storing the DN for authorization. I also like the idea of having atleast one OU specific to a grouping of users (division/.dept etc.) so the ACL can be generically set (if apps support wildcards..
What are some of the common working DN implementations out there?
Thanks in advance and please accept my apoloies if this is a repeat question.
