You can define a rootdn with no rootpw, and create an entry with the
rootdn's DN.  Then binding as the rootdn would require a regular bind to
that DN, which in turn requires auth access to that entry's DN and
userPassword, and this can be restricted via ACLs including ACLs on
source IP address and so.  As soon as that bind succeeds, that
connection would have complete rootdn privileges and thus bypass further
ACL checking.
