What is the performance impact of this?

For legacy reasons (early implementations of openldap and Netscape DS), 
Brandeis still implements this sort of thing by leaving private attributes 
*blank* and defining "brFerpaMail" etc. attributes that particular 
applications need to look for specifically, but switching to the above 
would be nice...

Nope, that's an ActiveDirectory thingie.
