You mean

idassert-authzfrom "dn:.*"

this is supported since 2.3 is out; only, it's not required (at least in
2.3.12-13) as it should to let anonymous connections be asserted.  It
will since 2.3.14.

OK, that's essentially ITS#4141
<http://www.openldap.org/its/index.cgi/Build?id=4141>: proxy backends
need threads when looping back because essentially each call is turned
into spawning one extra thread per connection, and the active thread
pool is limited by the "threads" directive.

This should be noted in slapd-ldap(5) and slapd-meta(5); I'll fix them.
