Just for the records: there's a workaround, you can use nested groups in
slapd's access control by means of sets; see
<http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/1133.html>, something like

access to *
    by set="user & [cn=group]/member*" read

Use with care.  This doesn't answer your question, though.
