slapd(8) can handle those occurrences.  slapadd(8) is intended to load
LDIF files generated by slapcat(8), thus presumably consistent.  In
general, it deals with the most obvious errors.  I don't think asking
slapadd to perform these checks is a good idea, as it would slow it down
without real benefit: if an error is caught, you would need to restart,
wasting all the actual write effort.  A sanity check tool for unreliable
LDIF would probably be more appropriate.  I guess at this point most users
would pretend their LDIF is always reliable, and avoid running the sanity
