From the nordugrid experience we find the DIT very important. According to our
view the LDAP rendering must come with a recommendation for DIT.
This was one of our main issues with glue-1.3.

dummy object to group e.g. job entries under queues.
btw, there is a similar grouping introduced in the xml rendering.
