It's been well known for some time to us as a community that StartTLS has a number of flaws. The usage of TLS via LDAPS is a far better option.
As a result, to correctly advertise and move this forward in our community, we should create an rfc draft that provides a reference, similar to the deprecation issued by smtp/imap communities.
We will keep the source of the draft rfc in our repo, but otherwise this is purely a formality to help shift our consumers and community attitudes to secure communication protocols.
