Huh? Which text in the ldapext draft charter indicates that we are
"going to restructure schemas and attribute types"?

The work item "inetOrgPerson 2.0 schema" is meant to just update or
replace RFC 2798. No more, no less. And I'd be willing to work on this one.

If you want to add work items you should come up with precise text for
ldapext draft charter describing what to do. And you should commit
yourself to work on it.

Personally I see no use for 'dnQualifier'. And 'organizationIdentifier'
would be more suitable in a update for RFC 4519 which we do *not* have
on our list yet.

Just mentioning ideas here is not enough.
You guys have to come up with charter text and put your name on work items!

Ciao, Michael.
