Basically you have three options:

1. Define a custom STRUCTURAL object class SUP organizationalUnit and create
entries based on that.

2. Define a custom AUXILIARY object class and add that to already existing
entries using organizationalUnit as structural object class.

3. Define a DIT content rule for organizationalUnit and use MUST/MAY/NOT to
meet your requirements.

Usually I prefer to either do 1. or 2. depending on other needs. I use 3. with
NOT quite often to forbid attributes really not used.
