Hi Mike,

After our last discussion about binaries i've looked at data uri scheme (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_URI_scheme) and think that you are right.
We can use it to store binaries and specify exact mediatype for it.
According to this http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2397.

     dataurl    := "data:" [ mediatype ] [ ";base64" ] "," data
     mediatype  := [ type "/" subtype ] *( ";" parameter )
     data       := *urlchar
     parameter  := attribute "=" value

In ldap besides additional attribute (literalBinaryValue) we also need:

 - attribute to store type of binary, mediaType
 - attribute to indicate base64
