refreshed, they are automatically {{deleted}}. There is no guarantee of immediate
deletion, so clients should not count on it.
Dynamic objects can have subordinates, provided these also are dynamic objects.
RFC 2589 does not specify what the behavior of a dynamic directory service
should be when a dynamic object with (dynamic) subordinates expires.
In this implementation, the lifetime of dynamic objects with subordinates is prolonged
until all the dynamic subordinates expire.
H3: Dynamic Directory Service Configuration
A usage of dynamic objects might beto implement dynamic meetings; in this case,
all the participants to the meeting are allowed to refresh the meeting object,
but only the creator can delete it (otherwise it will be deleted when the TTL expires).
If we add the overlay to an example database, specifying a Max TTL of 1 day, a
min of 10 seconds, with a default TTL of 1 hour. We'll also specify an interval
of 5 seconds between expiration checks and a tolerance of 1 second (lifetime of
a dynamic object will be {{B:entryTtl + tolerance}}.

H4: Dynamic Directory Service ACLs
Allow users to start a meeting and to join it; restrict refresh to the {{B:member}}s;
