Could you be more specific which LDAP standard it breaks? Is there an
explicit prohibition for the 'name' attribute to have ordering rules?
In the RFCs somewhere?

You saw it in your patch. RFC4519.
If you read RFC4519, you can see the "name" definition is derived from X.520.
So it breaks both RFC4519 and X.520.
