The goal of H.LDAP is to define LDAP representations of elements used by
  multimedia conferencing protocols. In particular, H.235 specifies the
use of X.509 certificates. We currently represent this attribute with
the syntax We are looking further at
whether the proposed changes will affect this. Further, we are
investigating whether h.235 requires the extended attributes defined here.

In general, only the attributes referenced in h.235 would be referrenced
in H.LDAP, so that will be the focus of our investigation, along with
new references that may be present in the upcoming h.235 version 3.
