MUST NOT, as the name already exists. Unfortunately this is a common end-user complaint.
I note that Protocol is missing language regarding the scenario where newrdn should be the same as the existing rdn (when moving and not renaming). I'll fix that.

>If an entry is renamed to cn=bar, may the server add the attribute
Yes, but I doubt there are many that do,
