Subject: How to check whether or not an object is a leaf?

Hi,

I have a user interface which I do not want to present search/list
options when it displays leaf objects (specifically, some organizations
and organizationalUnits).  Now, quipuObjects are leaves if they are
neither quipuNonLeafObject nor externalNonLeafObject.  But how do I
recognize a X.500(1993) leaf object?

Or, if there is currently no way, *please* let's create a convention for
how to mark leaf objects, even if the mark is only advisory.
