This could be solved by replicating to a ldap proxy as 'man in the
middle'. The ldap backend with rewriting overlay could handle this.

Most attributes are multi valued.

UTF-8,the unix transformation format of unicode is required by the
protocol, that is, all your entries are in UTF-8 already. If you want
to add multibyte characters to an ldif file, you probably have to
convert your ldif file to UTF-8.
