I want to create a set of groups that will be used for authorization

best serve this purpose. (Better suggestions?) However, both object
require at least one member attribute. There will be times though when a
member is not known. How do you handle this?

Right now I create all groups with an invalid member attribute:

member: cn=invalid,dc=..,dc=..

Does this break any convention? Is there a better way to handle this?

what I usually do is add the DN of the group itself.

Hmm, this could lead to problems with software which resolves nested groups.

A software that isn't able to trace such a simple loop is likely to fail whatever trick you use.
