The definition of 'name' is hard-coded into slapd.

Note that the 'name' attribute is normally not included in entries,
it's only used as a supertype for other attributes.  And since
it is the supertype of e.g. ou and cn, a search for "(name=foo)"
will also find entries that contain cn: foo or ou: foo.
