Technical Summary
 
This document describes a control for the Lightweight Directory 
Access Protocol version 3 that is used to return a subset of 
attribute values from an entry, specifically, only those values that 
match a "values return" filter. Without support for this control, a 
client must retrieve all of an attribute's values and search for 
specific values locally.
