Personally I prefer to use 'applicationProcess' as a base class for system
processes. You mileage may vary though depending on what attributes you have
to store therein.

The usual group entry object classes ('groupOfNames', 'organizationalRole'
etc.) simply store the member's entry DN. So there is no constraint on the
object class of the member's entry.
