I had some need of the kind with back-sql, and I implemented a specific
layer that allows to rewrite the DN outside of its string representation
to comply with SQL odds.  A general interface could be interesting, but I
fear the impact on performances; it should be totally transparent if not
required, much like overlays right now.
