Note: the {{EX:ref}} attribute is operational and must be explicitly
requested when desired in search results.
Note: the use of referrals to construct a Distributed Directory Service is
extremely clumsy and not well supported by common clients. If an existing
installation has already been built using referrals, the use of the
{{chain}} overlay to hide the referrals will greatly improve the usability
of the Directory system. A better approach would be to use explicitly
defined local and proxy databases in {{subordinate}} configurations to
provide a seamless view of the Distributed Directory.
