Yes, thanks :) I think I will un-postpone this issue...

This morning, while in my bed, I was thinking about implementing a 
in-memory data structure to manage AAP, ASP and IAP. I still have to 
come with something that could work.

Some of the issues are :
- initialisation of this structure at startup
- of course, managing the updates
- checking that the associated entry contains the correct elements (ie, 
an AAP *must* have ( values in its administrativeRole AT, something 
which is *not* done atm) (the fifth value will be the 
- how to leverage this data structure to handle the evaluation of entries
- managing the subentries to use for a specific entry

We also have side issues like :
- should the 'evaluate()' method be part of the interceptor classes or 
not ? I think that it shoul dbe moved to the DirectoryService class.
- same for the subentry cache
- addition of a <subentyUUID, entry> cache to speedup the update of 
entries when a Move operation is applied on a subentry
- switch from DN to UUID for references to the subentry in the entries 
(partially done, works well for collective attriutes, except that we 
have to add on the fly the collectiveAttributeSubentries DN when 
returning the entry (it's then a kind of virtual attribute)

Not quite simple, but exciting...
