I tend to be unconfortable with running with such custom code, because it can be troublesome to maintain through OpenLDAP updates, if the API used by the overlay changes.

Is there a set of stable API that an overlay can use without the fear to
break on the next update?

I suppose you could always use SLAPI instead of native overlays. But that's the tradeoff - the stable API is also pretty limited compared to the native API.
