The value in LDAP is WITH the pending S, because at the moment we have a
"courier situation" and the quota value need the S.
We want to migrate some domain to dovecot to use sieve, but we cant
change the value in LDAP.

Probably you are right, but why root quota are correct?
(without S at the end)
If I change the value in LDAP the root quota follow this change

This could be a good idea.

This is a better idea, that can help migration from courier
