The Problem

Specifying that DirXML should use a template when creating an account will sometimes cause the template's name to be added as an additional CN of the new account. This is often undesirable, because many DirXML matching rules do not handle multivalued CNs elegantly.

The Solution

Instead of using DirXML's built-in "template-dn" functionality (a feature of the <add> command), simulate it using a stylesheet. With the additional control of a stylesheet we can prevent the template's CN from being added to the "Other Name" field (i.e. as an additional CN of the newly created object.)
