I wouldn't put it under the ServerStartupConfiguration.  No point to,
other than lashing two classes together.  Instead, the
LdapConfiguration is read via Spring in server-main Service and used
in the ServerContextFactory to start the LDAP protocol providers for

Yes, it inverts the relationship between server-jndi and
protocol-ldap.  Again, no point to making it a subordinate object of
ServerStartupConfiguration.  That unnecessarily makes LDAP
configuration a part of every server.  The issue will be keeping
protocol config consistent with the other 4 protocols we have.

No.  Totally separate bean.  Again, people may want LDAP (the PP) in
most cases, but not the other protocols.  So why not make them all
modular if it is trivial to do so?

Elaborate as to what, specifically?
