The string is reparsed because normalization is not just a matter of 
handing whitespace.  It involves normalizing values so that case and 
white space varience do not effect the outcome of addressing the entry 
node within the namespace.  Things like the attribute schema determine 
how this is going to happen.  However this might not contradict what you 
are asking I just don't have enough info from this one liner.

I think you are referring to when a non-normalized DN (user provided 
input) as an LdapName is converted into a string then put through the 
parser again.  It might not have to be if I understand you.
