I might be showing my ignorance here, but I'd expect most 'ou' names to be hierarchical (e.g., "ou=dev.provo.novell"). Can SLP scope names be hierarchical as well (i.e., is there a character set aside to denotate hirerarchical levels)? Notice that something like "scope=dev" would not be sufficient and "scope=dev-provo-novell" might not provide a reliable mapping either as the hyphen is commonly use in the naming of objects. Thus, does "scope=bldg-h-provo-novell" translate into "ou=bldg-h.provo.novell" or "ou=bldg.h.provo.novell"?
