Having just been through this process, I heartily agree. I had to
write scripts to go through the output LDIF from DSEE and remove
(for example) lines that had attribute names but no values, e.g.
And there were a couple of attribute types (like
telephoneNumber and, I believe, 'manager') where I had
to go into the schema files and change the syntax type
to something more forgiving (directoryString, I think),
since DSEE had cheerfully accepted all kinds of arbitrary
values for these attributes.
