One could define a custom object class for group entries which have both
attributes set to serve Posix clients which use one or the other schema.

objectclass ( <my.oid>
  NAME 'myGroup'
  DESC 'Posix group for mixed group schema RFC 2307 and RFC 2307bis'
  SUP ( groupOfMembers $ posixGroup ) )

One has to be careful to maintain both attributes consistently though.

With OpenLDAP changing the structural object class of existing entries is
possible via LDAP with the relax rules control sent along with the modify request.
