Actually the client could request that.

Since you insist on using a rather unusable feature you should probably dive
into RFC 2891 and look at this:

      SortKeyList ::= SEQUENCE OF SEQUENCE {
                 attributeType   AttributeDescription,
                 orderingRule    [0] MatchingRuleId OPTIONAL,
                 reverseOrder    [1] BOOLEAN DEFAULT FALSE }

The LDAP client can (optionally) define which ordering matching rule to use
for a particular attribute type. So ask M$ to send 'orderingRule' in the SSS
request control if they do not send it yet. I'm too lazy to check in the PCAP
data you posted before.

Ciao, Michael.
