Yeah, it is a list, internally.

The doco express the fact that a DN is seen as a branch of a tree, where 
each node is a RDN.

Doco is not really acurate, and it should have been something like :
"It represents a path through a tree, in which the root is the last RDN 
(RDN[0]) ..."

To be clear, with a dn : dc=example, dc=org
we have :
RDN[0] : dc = org
RDN[1] : dc=example
