AD does this (AFAIK, I'm only pushing stuff there), we're also using
OpenLDAP's memberOf overlay, so yes.

Not unless a need/desire for non-DN valued memberships comes up.

> Will you be provisioning eduCourse ?

Courses are not currently in scope, maybe later.

This is just teminology, but the only real reference to these terms I
found in this context/community is the venerable LDAP recipe, in which
these both refer to the same DIT model:

This is the "flat *and* bushy" model as opposed to "tall and spikey".
(my emphasis)

Another canonical text (Howes et al., 2003, 2nd ed.) calls this
dichotomy "flat" vs. "hierarchical" (p.315ff). Jfyi.

As for provisioning plans: Our current -- and to be replaced in a
later project, if things go well -- group management system provisions
groups in hierarchies (cn=group, ou=folder/stem, ...). Not sure we'll
stick with this, so undecided.
