Bolek (GateIn) has probably seen the volume for LDAP usecases. He can 
tell us if this is a common issue.

In my opinion, we should not worry about the number of attributes for 
LDAP usecase for the first release.

Alternatively, we can keep it in the API for future implementation(when 
users demand it).
