Subject Re: LDAP custom-asf schema - family name?

Hey sebb,

I have already extended the schema to include 4 of the 5 fields in the iclas.txt file. 
The availid, cant really be recorded ;-)  as this is your username.  

So we do now have the concept of 'public name', and 'legal name' 

I have added the values for my entry so as to show people what we can add.  I have also edited
the ACL, to only root/secretary to edit the all but the 'public name' which I have allowed
root/secretary@/$SELF to edit. 

We can certainly add 'sn', and 'givenName' - again they have been on my record for ages. 
Do we have a known good source from which to definitively take this info from?  As your cited
example below of 'lewis ship' which is not hyphenated would sure make ingesting them from
iclas.txt quite difficult.  Unless we ingest on a best efforts basis, and then tell committers
to review their details and edit them if they are wrong (adding the fields to be edited in
id.a.o is trivial)
