OpenLDAP/FreeBSD: How to implement attribute HOST without STRUCTURAL

Hello out there,
my question may sound a bit weird, but the situation is as follows:
I use OpenLDAP 2.4 for authetication purposes within our lab's net and
every user's account is of the objectclass 'posixAccount'. As we know,
this class does not contain the attribute 'host', which belongs to
structural class 'account' and both posixAccount and account are of
type structural and therefore can not be mixed.
For some first steps in host-based and LDAP-backed up logins I need to
allow logins on several machines by looking at the host (I use PAM for
both authtentication and accounting).
Looking at /usr/local/etc/nss_ldap.conf (or simply ldap.conf) I find a tag
to be set when we want to use host based logins. But this does not work
due to the above mentioned reasons.
Is there a elegant workaround for this situation?
Thanks in advance,
