Wow this one is really old. From what hazy memory I have of it, this control
is a marker control. It has no payload from what I remember.

The idea that drove creating it was to be able to issue subtree deletes. I
don't remember if there is an RFC or like minded control to do the same.
Have not checked. Don't remember if we even looked.

At some point PAM and I had some conversations about how to be able to
manage some schema operations and cascade deletes had come up but I don't
remember them now.

I don't think the control is being used, if even referenced it might have
just had some scaffolding setup for it without actual use.
