Thanks for the feedback, Ole! I have continued the work an the text, but 
I have not finished it yet.

Good idea. I have added this option with a screen shot of LDAP Studio.

A user from the target group of this section plans to define/add a new 
custom object class. Not necessarily an ObjectClass entry.
Not all LDAP servers store their schema elements as entries in the DIT 
(ApacheDS 1.0 for instance does not, this holds true for several other 
vendors as well).
I would prefer to keep the motivation server independent. So the readers 
can also learn about the general concepts, not only ApacheDS.

I have included this one. This is very helpful, my English really needs 
some refurbishment.
