Re: syncrepl, updateref, chain overlay and the authzTo attribute

I suppose so, at least the documentation under
seems to instruct me to do so.

Now I am confused.
My understanding is that the client binds to the syncrrepl consumer, the consumer binds to the provider (using the replication dn, for example). But now, how should the master know which access control to enforce? I thought that precisely for that purpuse, the consumer would idassert-bind (i.e. PROXYAUTHZ) to the client's identity.
Is my understanding totally wrong?
Is there an easier way of doing this?

I was looking /for/ a (non-existent) schema containing the (operational) authzTo attribute. To me, taht looks like I've wasted my time.
Or am I wrong again in my assumption that authzTo is an operational attribute?
