I agree ! I haven't tried out the new hint either, but it looks promising. Especially when reading the part:

Now when the user Web1 logs in, they should have access to the "/Library/WebServer/Documents/" folder and be able to modify all the files therein. This process can also be used for any of the other folders on the system. Once the folder is a "Share Point," users will have the ability to manipulate the contents. For multiple users, repeat steps 2, 3 and 6.

What I want to do is to give a user access to a shared Calendar to which appointments may be added. So I plan to give my user access to a calendar on the webserver. I understand that changed calendars in the Open Directory (OpenLDAP v3 in my Mac OS X 10.3 system) are sent round to registered users as a replica. In a number of weeks we will upgrade to 10.4 .
Any type of document could be made accessible to users.
Can this system also handle the storage of pictures in an Open Directory? I would like use the Open Directory as a document imaging system. All the accounting documents could be stored here as well.

If can get this really working for our company we can all have shared calendars, documents and accounting stuff stored in the Open Directory. This looks like a solution to the data sharing problem and an answer to my question. In the company we have Windows, Apple as well as Linux machines. I am going to look further into this in the office on Monday (after my morning coffee of course :-))) ).
