Glad to hear that.

Missing attributes we all add later by defining yet another custom
person object class.

Possible examples:
birthName, birthPlace, buildingName, businessTitle, c (alias
countryName), dateOfBirth, delegatesTo, employeeType, gender, nickName,
organizationalStatus, personalTitle, serialNumber, uniqueIdentifier,

I'm pretty sure many of us have other attributes to add.
We could try to build up on the schema work in the higher-education
community but should carefully try avoid bloat.

We could also consider to deprecate use of some attributes in new
deployments. As recommendation for local profiles we might even define
DIT content rules with NOT as formal but optional deprecation spec.

Possibe deprecation examples:
photo (Fax syntax!)

Ciao, Michael.
