Are OID Macros specific to slapd?
They're a feature of X.500 that was lost in the translation to LDAP. I
implemented them for OpenLDAP and as far as I know they're unique to OpenLDAP.
I messed with them a bit; in X.500 specs they still just use dots as
separators but I found that too ambiguous for parsing, so I used colons.
