Empty suffix database vs. rootDSE

I've noticed that if a producer is rooted at the empty suffix, searches
for the rootDSE (base="", scope="base"), return an entry consisting in the
rootDSE entry plus the producer's contextCSN.

I've tracked this down to backend_operational(): at some point, when the
entry is almost ready, selects the database that serves the empty DN, and
calls that database's be_operational() helper; here syncprov_operational()
adds the contextCSN.

Is this intended?  I'm asking because indeed this is the only way we can
get the contextCSN for that database; searches with base="" and scope
other than "base" would return the database's entries but no entry with
empty dn.
