    I would not call this "best practice". At this point, it is a
    hypothetical practice recommended as a way of fostering SLP/LDAP
    interoperability. To my knowledge, there is no commercial DA
    currently available that shadows service registrations into LDAP.
    Sunlabs did a prototype that validated the RFC 2926 schema conversion
    draft, but the code was never productized.
