rfc2865 and RADIUS-LDAPv3.schema inconsistencies?

hi developers!

i had a closer look at RADIUS-LDAPv3.schema (rev. and compared it with
rfc2865 and there seem to be some "inconsistencies": some attributes which may
contain zero or more values according to rfc2865 (http://rfc.net/rfc2865.html)
are defined as SINGLE-VALUE in the schema file.

as far as i understand the rfc the following values (the numbers in brackets
refer to the section nr. and page) may contain more values:

Filter-Id <-> radiusFilterId (5.11, p.36)
Framed-AppleTalk-Network <-> radiusFramedAppleTalkNetwork (5.38, p.58)
Framed-Compresion <-> radiusFramedCompression (5.13, p.37)
Login-IP-Host <-> radiusLoginIPHost (5.15, p.38)

the attribute NAS-IP-Address (radiusNASIpAddress) is described (in rfc) to be
allowed to be present zero or one time (see 5.4, p.29, and 5.44: table of
attributes, p.63), but is not defined as SINGLE-VALUE in the schema file.

i am not using these values right now so i don't know if this differences can
cause problems, i just came across this by testing nicolas' patch for bug 261
some time ago and finally had some time and mood to read the rfc.
of course i also do not know if these differences are intended, i am just
wondering about them! ;-)

with best regards,
