I don’t think this is a good idea, a LDAP dn has read/write privilege to
all its own attributes are quite normal, for example, change password
in self-service applications (we do this in Roundcube webmail too).

Besides, setting ACL in LDAP server is a good idea. If we go this way,
we have to create a new bind dn for just SOGO itself, and add one more
ACL in LDAP server to control which LDAP objectClass/attribute it can
read. This is making software deployment more complex.

So, why not simply don’t store unnecessary data in backup file? This should
be the best solution.
