Hey Guys,

I was thinking about how the DAS could work
without users having to configure new partitions
when wanting to store something like:

ou=Accounts, ou=users, ou=example, ou=com

My first thought was to have the DAS user
add a new partition with

DN: ou=com

But that seems like
a lot of additional effort to ask users
to expend, if they don't want to change the
partition implementation.

So what the DAS do is use a pre-configured
partition, like system.  Then it would

Ole system is not to be touched by users.  It is a very special partition.  There is a programmatic way to add a new partition to ApacheDS without having to deal with the server.xml configuration file.  Just take a look at this presentation which has information on how to do this programmatically:

http://directory.apache.org/community%26resources/embedding-apacheds.html

just add the entries ou=com, etc. under system.

Not a good idea.
