Nothing. But it's more cumbersome. Also comments are lost. Normally I comment
everything and describe for which requirement in the concept the ACLs,
constraints, etc. are for.

Also the schema with X-ORDERED is cumbersome. There's no LDAP client which
really supports it. You have to do too much manually.

There's no mechanism like include.


Ciao, Michael.
