That is a point yes. 
I wonder if you (or someone else in the OpenLDAP team ) would like to
add two things to the Openldap administrationguide:
1) A comment on using the /usr/lib/sasl2/slapd.conf file for setting
where the keytab should be. 
2) A suggested set of base acls for normal ldapusers that is more strict
than the one in the adminguide today. LDAP-usage seems to me to reach
wider and wider audiences and the example in the adminguide makes it
easy for users to change attributes such as gid and uid that makes it
possible to get higher privileges. 

I have also contacted the author of the ldp LDAP-howto and asked him if
he is interested in placing the howto under his wings. There are a lot
of LDAP-howtowriters around that could have spent their energies better
by adding to that howto :-)

However, I will wait until Love has decided what to do with the patch I
sent as I will have to rewrite parts of the howto if he doesn't add a
searchbase configuration option.
