dc-style DNs are meant to be mapped to DNS domain names. Note that DNS
names does not allow an underscore. Since there wasn't a globally unique
name space established this is the way to go to create DNs which are
registered to your company like DNS domain names.

dc=stroeder,dc=com or whatever below of that.

You could also just use "o=My company name".
