There was a missing case in my analysis about the ModifyDN operation : 
when you don't change the RDN, but simply modify the superior. This was 
not handled properly in the code. Hopefully, the code was OK, but 
sub-optimal, and didn't reflect the reality.

I have updated the wiki page :

Look at the end of the page, and you will see that I have now 5 cases 
instead of 4. The ast one is about the Move operation.
