In a "properly" designed LDAP schema it would be rather easy
to push subtrees around containing just the divisional
informations. That's part of what LDAP is designed to do as I
gather from the reading.

Actually, the data in requests and replies is not all that
much (think DNS queries) but for a non-LAN LDAP _only_ we'd
need rather reliable, continuous, cheap and reasonably fast
access to it. Certainly from a organisational point of view a
local demon would be needed. It might push-sync from the
up-level server for regional info and pull-sync once a day or
so for out-of-region data and maybe once a week/month for data on
German doctors :-)
