Let me try to be more clear.

Yes I agree.

My new method performs an ldap lookup to query the contents of the legacy 
configuration objects, and actually moves them to the new locations which are 
replica friendly.

Thus, I was suggesting, yes, let us move forward with baby steps, fix the cn 
naming oversight, fix the replica install oversight with the .update files.

Then once ns-slapd 1.2.9 is available, implement the newer patch, which makes 
the .update files for host/nis and user private groups obsolete. (Since it will 
read the data, and any additional custom user created configs, and move them)
That's what I had meant about having the future patch provide an updated method 
for handling the 'upgrade' and migration and remove those .update files as they 
would no longer be relevant.
