Since web2ldap and the delta-modification generator has full schema

Sure. Again, for single-valued attributes, I didn't see any point in providing EQUALITY rules because there's only one possible value to delete.

But even if the assertion control is not used explicitly deleting certain attribute value(s) makes the modify request fail if a modification to these attributes happened in between. Are you suggesting that I should also look at whether the attribute type is declared with SINGLE-VALUE and then explicitly delete values?

Hmm, this is hairy because LDAP servers might behave quite differently...

Ciao, Michael.
