Browse <http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/1284.html> in general for
OpenLDA access control customization capabilities, and
<http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/758.html> for more details about
ACIs.  Note, that document is pretty old; something changed across time
(which caused this thread, BTW).  ACIs need to be documented; our
reluctance also stems from the consideration that good documentation
would encourage rather than discourage their use...  anyway, volunteers
are welcome.

Yes (experimental, deprecated and discouraged).
