The only way to perform such an operation with the standard schema would be to fetch all uidNumber
attributes and then perform a client-side search for <= 500, for example. That really
doesn't make much sense, it is far better to have the server perform this query, hence
the need for an ordering rule in this case, or a custom attribute. However, this should be
better discussed on the nssldap@padl.com mailing list I think.
