Well, the extra controls/extended operations are those only ApacheDS
support. As teh LDAP API is supposed to be a common LDAP API, there is
no reason to enforce the usage of our own features for those using the
API to talk to OpenLDAP, AD? or whatever LDAP server.

This is the reason we have this distinction, and I think it's good to
keep it this way.
For the few classes I mentionned, it does not make sense to have them in
extra - and part of this is my fault, I created the pwdModify classes in
the worng place -
