Hi Joseph,
just to seek some clarifications, in the errata [2],
it read:
 "DNames (X509IssuerSerial, X509SubjectName, and
KeyName if approriate) should be encoded in accordance
with RFC2253 [LDAP-DN] except for the encoding of
string values within a DName:"

Should the errata include the changes in the range of
unicode escape characters from (\x00 to \x20)  to
(\x00 to \x1f) as I have seen in the Editor Draft [1]?

Regards,
Herry.
