Thank you both for your answers so far -- I have found posts by you two
dating back to ~2000 very helpful.

So, to follow up -- assuming I do not want to map the DN if it is
possible.  Will a group acl (by group="...") referencing a group
containg the unmapped SASL DN as a member be properly resolved and
applied, or does the mapping need to be done for this resolution to
properly occur?

I appreciate the help,
