Just a nit, but all URLs, by definition, are URIs.
But not all URIs are URLs.  Some may be URNs.  However,
in practice (and often in technical specifications), the
distinction doesn't matter too much.  It certainly doesn't
matter to this discussion.

An LDAP URLs can be used to represent two things:
        1) a search request (location of a set of entries)
        2) location of a LDAP server

In the context of -H (or in ldap.conf), it's being used
only to represent location of an LDAP server.
