(ITS#8610) ldaps not usable with DNS SRV

if I use "ldap:///dc%3Dexample%2Cdc%3Dorg"; on a test system all works properly
but I must use LDAPS on a DMZ system and so I try
"ldaps:///dc%3Dexample%2Cdc%3Dorg" but this search for a ldap DNS SRV record
which of course returns the normal ldap port not the ldaps port. This can't
work, because a firewall is between.
Is this normal (by design) or an bug? There is also an old discussion on your
site: http://www.openldap.org/lists/openldap-technical/201203/msg00027.html.
IMO should OpenSSL either support DNS SRV lookup for each scheme or for none.
