> Although subtreeSpecification and the Administrative Model in general are really such
great facilities, they need to be improved to meet today's directory deployment needs. The
subtreeSpecification syntax as defined in RFC3672 allows entry selection based DIT geometry
(base, minimum, maximum, chops) and object classes (like faculty, employee) which is called
Refinements in X.500.
> Nowadays LDAP directories are no longer being designed in a deeply hierarchical manner.
They are more flat and the organization is based on attribute values with dynamic filters/groups/roles.
So we need to improve the subtreeSpecification syntax to allow regular LDAP filters to be
able to select DIT portions/entries according to attribute values.
> The proposed extension schemes are discussed in the following cwiki page:
