Since they all have default values set they won't be prompted for on the
CLI so there won't be any practical changes.

This patch fixes the problem with required attributes in DNS Zones and
cn, uidNumber, and gidNumber in Users. The UI now shows the required
indicators for these attributes. So this patch is ACKed.

Some problems mentioned in ticket #2015 are still present:

1. Removing the homeDirectory from a user fails because it's required by

Ok, I can probably fix this one.

2. Removing the gidNumber from a group fails because it's required by

Well, its hard to make gidNumber required since you can have non-posix groups. I think we'll have to just live with this one.

3. Removing config attributes listed in the ticket generates internal
error. I think at least the server should return a proper error message.
The required indicator can be hard-coded in the UI if necessary.

The config problems are a separate issue. To make them required would mean that the user would need to provide a value with a -mod request.
