If you are going to use a Chain patter, then I guess that the important
point is to think about the problem it solves. For instance, monitoring
by inserting loggers could be a good usage. But the main advantage of
chain parttern is its versatility : you can change the order of
handlers, or simply add or remove handlers on demand. If you never do
that, then using a chain pattern is questionable (IMHO).

With MINA filters I think we can still achieve the level of logging that you're talking
about but perhaps not at the same resolution so I think the dynamism we gain
from the chain pattern is somewhat redundant.  I don't think it's necessary here
since the protocol is relatively static.  Actually the chain pattern might benefit
LDAP more since it can introduce new mechanisms for things like SASL, Controls,
and extended operations  but there might be more manageable patterns for this.
