What you call a deficiency(sp) is sheer nonsense. Tell me how you expect
to provide read/write database access to a file included from any

it would be irresponsible to ever allow it to do "X". You haven't
thought it through, you're just babbling.

In my use cases I don't need read/write database access to a file for configuration.

I can afford to restart slapd to make it reload the configuration file, as it always did until now.

What I'm advocating is not losing this feature.
