I need to check it in the specs, but the bad news is that I was able to 
create this entry

dn: ou=Judean Peoples Front+ou=Peoples Front of Judea,
objectClass: organizationalUnit
objectClass: top
ou: Peoples Front of Judea
ou: Judean Peoples Front

within my Tivoli Directory Server 6.0 instance (the first vendor I 
tried). It is therefore almost certain, that it is allowed by the 
standards. But there are probably vendors who do not allow it (by schema 
restrictions, for instance). E.g. Active Directory does not allow an 
attribute as RDN, if it has multiple values within the entry (even one 
of the values is not allowed).

More details to come, after sweet dreams != RFCs.
Greeting from Hamburg at night, Stefan
