Use uidNumber as memberUid attribute

At the moment we set ldap.synchronization.groupMemberAttributeName to memberUid and put the full dn as the value.
AS we have some transformations in our ldap ahead, that will make management of all those dn's a little difficult.

It would be nice to be able to use the uidNumber as a groupmember attribute, which is a constant and unique number ldap can use to lookup the right user.
As we currently use the mail attribute as the loginname (ldap.synchronization.userIdAttributeName=mail), it's impossible to manage use groups in ldap this way.

In other ldap-enable applications it's othen possible to separately specify the attribute to search for when finding it as a member(Uid) value.

As I may have overlooked something: is something like this already possible with Alfresco?
If not: is there a work around available?
If not: is this a function I can put in Jira and expect to see available in 5.0x?
