so i currently have a flat namespace of ou=people for all my people. i
have an ou=nonpeople for some non people entities,,,like email lists that
our spam appliances need email addresses for(our anti-spam systems are tied
into idm)

i now need to put departments, units, institutes, etc in the vault. i am
trying to decide what namespace to use.

i can:

1) treat them as nonpeople and use attributes to distinguish them and
shove them in the ou=nonpeople space

2) build another namespace such as ou=x, with ou=departments,ou=units, etc
as subcontainers.

obviously pros and cons to each. i am curious of some others thoughts.
