I was browsing through the backends for slapd and wondering if there

Deploy a replica with no existing database,
Any searches not found in the local repository are searched from a set

If found: cache response, return result,
Else if not found: return failure.

Yes, it's obviously a good idea. In 2.2 and 2.3 back-ldap or back-meta with the proxycache overlay does this.
