New submission from Martin Konold <martin.konold at erfrakon.de>:

user.php is not group specific it displays to many editable fields.  
Some of them are later thrown away: 
if ($auth->group() == "user") { 
This is bad maintainance and usability wise. 
I see two potential solutions: 
o clean solution 
- check LDAP for write permissions and only offer an editable field for 
attribute values where user really has write permissions. 
o alternative solution (with extra redundancy) 
- provide in the php code a mean to easily define which values are editable for 
which groups. E.g. something comparable to the current validation hash.
