+1 for specific parameters, that avoids one more step of reading some external doc to understand
this API.
(I still do a search for env parameter values while writing code to create a InitialContext
:( )

On a other note, I think this client API would help me in my sandboxed work on Object LDAP
mapping (currently from 
schema-> POJO -> Server). Currently this is tightly coupled with CoreSession API.

I believe that once we get the client-api out then the OLM ( !! ;) ) project will benefit
from it. as I need not provide 
a client side binding in two different APIs (ADS core API, JNDI)
