This is not actually so. The only attributes pam_ldap/nss_ldap need are
those typically present in getent passwd and getent group:

userPassword uidNumber gidNumber cn homeDirectory loginShell gecos
description objectClass

plus maybe a couple of others: uid, cn, memberUid, uniqueMember etc.,
depending on your setup.

There are many cases in which unprivileged (not necessarily but often
bound) entities should can be configured not to be able to read details
- think of homeTelephoneNumber, homeAddress, mobile etc. So "access to *
by * would never do in my ACLs ;)
