Regarding PKI, I'm a bit curious, does this also apply for LDAP ?

I've just been reading RFC 2259 and 1778 and as I
understand it the relevant LDAP attributes should be 
encoded according to the 'Undefined' syntax (RFC 1778,
chap.2.1), which states that it should be BER encoded.

Just to avoid double work, I'm currently implementing 
an Erlang LDAPv3 interface (GPL). It would be great to 
get some input about specific LDAP requirements related 
to PKI.
