I don't see anything in the document you refer to that implies that slapd will 
enforce uniqueness on the attribute. It only states that organisations may 
maintain a unique ID (but does not state how).

Uniqueness is orthogonal to being multi-valued.

If you do want to enforce uniqueness on an attribute, see the slapo-unique 
overlay, which can do this for you, without a custom schema/attribute
