auditlog is not appropriate.

Please can you explain why this is so?

Auditlog is a poorly written overlay that hopefully will be deleted in the future. It kills perf, and in general is not recommended for use. If you want a record of changes, I suggest you look at the accesslog overlay.

1. Can we use an LDIF backend with the auditlog overlay?

2. Has anyone written a program to convert the auditlog data to an
   LDIF format that can be applied with ldapmodify?

One of the advantages of syncrepl (Although I use and prefer delta-syncrepl, since syncrepl has not proven reliable in my experience)

We are avoiding delta-syncrepl because, for reliability, we want to
use mirror-mode, and at
under section Arguments against MirrorMode is written:

"Delta-Syncrepl is not yet supported"

3. Does this mean that we are aiming for a less reliable replication
   with syncrepl that with delta-syncrepl?

4. Is there any prospect of delta-syncrepl being supported with

We will use something like heartbeat or corosync/pacemaker to limit
writes to one of the two mirror-mode masters.
