Please file an ITS (assuming you're using a recent version of OpenLDAP; otherwise first try with the latest 2.4).

IMHO (as one of the developers of both) they have the same level of "experimental".  If you find any documentation that states differently, please point me to them, because they need to be fixed.

OK, good for the version.  Please file a separate ITS for slapo-rwm(5) crash (unless it is related to ITS#5923; you can tell by running re24 from the CVS, or I can guess if you send a stack backtrace of the crash).

Please do.  In fact your use of those features is non-standard, but:
1) the crashes are not nice at all
2) OpenLDAP is intended to support non-standard features as well
