The Syntax registry is used to give an access to attribute syntax checkers. Each time an attribute value is added or modified, it has to be checked.

As we will have either the attribute's name or its OID, we should find the correct syntax using the registry, which should know the relation between an attribute OID and the used syntax.
In theory, we don't need at all to use a registry for that purpose. We already have everything we need stored in each AttributeType objects, and we have a way to access this object with either its name or OID, and the syntax checker is stored within this object.
What we just need to do is to call the check() method this way :
