Subject Re: Handling M$ specification violations

I think so - I realize that our OpenDS SDK needs to cope with this as 
well :-(

It makes me wonder what else could be violated? Should we permit non-DNs 
for all operations? E.g. modifying the entry ""?  
It seems a bit inconsistent to be lax in only one part of the protocol 
but not others. ;-)

My preference is to encourage conformance where possible. What other 
known violations are there other than the bind DN?
