ldap query list in exchange 2013

I have read that ex2013 still reads the ldap filters but to edit them in 2013 they need to be converted to opath, is that accurate?
we have a heavy use of query based distribution lists (1000+) that use attributes that opath does not see ( no job title? really?)  I have about 5 attribute that I really don't want to duplicate to customattributes, we are preparing to move from 2003 to 2013, after the transition will those lists still work with out converting to opath? can I just edit them with adsiedit if I need to change anything?

yes this is accurate starting exchange 2007

Job Title in opath is title check them here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb738157(v=exchg.150).aspx

these will work on 2007+ but you can't edit them anymore from exchange. Editting them from ADSIEdit "should" work though but I haven't tried it

many can only be done using powershell


physicalDeliveryOfficeName -> Office

for these 2 I am afraid it seems they are not filterable
