Hi Colm,
the idea is to include such information (and more about new and old features) in the reference
guide, which looks to me as the biggest effort remaining before 2.0.0 - and help is highly
appreciated ;-)
Once done, we will also need to discuss about reorganizing the wiki to coexist with it.

Anyway, think about the case in which you have a "department" attribute for users - pulled
by Active Directory for example. You can easily select HR or IT department users in a dynamic
group (for propagation onto an external db) or in a dynamic role (for delegated administration
via console).

But this is just a bare sample, maybe others can come with more.

AFAIR such feature originated from COS templates in Sun Directory Server.
