There are no due dates.  If and when it becomes available, the
Project will consider it for inclusion in OpenLDAP Software.

Presently, it's not being actively developed (as far as I know).
Updating the LDAP Transaction specification is on my long list to
do, but no where near the top of that list.   Those interested
in specifying and/or coding this should feel free to jump on

Well, I presume one can use any decent LDAP API to make use
of LDAP Transactions (since LDAP Transactions will utilize
standard extension mechanisms).

I have no idea whether JNDI is a decent LDAP API (e.g., supports
standard extension mechanism), but someone on a JNDI list
likely does.
