Hi Joe,

Possible help for clarifying IDS Model references to organizations.

>From pages 24-25 of section 3 Object Classes in IETF LDAP Schema
for User Applications (RFC 4519) - this is the main normative source
for the LDAP Printer Schema (RFC 3712):

3.8.  'organization'

   The 'organization' object class is the basis of an entry that
   represents a structured group of people.
   (Source: X.521 [X.521])

      ( 2.5.6.4 NAME 'organization'
         SUP top
         STRUCTURAL
         MUST o
         MAY ( userPassword $ searchGuide $ seeAlso $
               businessCategory $ x121Address $ registeredAddress $
               destinationIndicator $ preferredDeliveryMethod $
               telexNumber $ teletexTerminalIdentifier $
               telephoneNumber $ internationalISDNNumber $
               facsimileTelephoneNumber $ street $ postOfficeBox $
               postalCode $ postalAddress $ physicalDeliveryOfficeName $
               st $ l $ description ) )

3.11.  'organizationalUnit'

   The 'organizationalUnit' object class is the basis of an entry that
   represents a piece of an organization.
   (Source: X.521 [X.521])

      ( 2.5.6.5 NAME 'organizationalUnit'
         SUP top
         STRUCTURAL
         MUST ou
         MAY ( businessCategory $ description $ destinationIndicator $
               facsimileTelephoneNumber $ internationalISDNNumber $ l $
               physicalDeliveryOfficeName $ postalAddress $ postalCode $
               postOfficeBox $ preferredDeliveryMethod $
               registeredAddress $ searchGuide $ seeAlso $ st $ street $
               telephoneNumber $ teletexTerminalIdentifier $
               telexNumber $ userPassword $ x121Address ) )

Note that elegant definition of "organization" as a "structured group
of people" (i.e., avoids the use of company, enterprise, etc.).

BTW - ITU-T X.521 is freely available from ITU for download.

Cheers,
- Ira
