For the mail aliases I was refering to the 'alias' attribute, which I think Cyrus uses..

I'm all for it.
Just curious - by default, Webmin doesn't include rfc822Mailbox or mail
as a standard attributes and I've always added it for the base
mailboxes. There is no standard for a mail alias unless you are talking
about the objectclass nisMailAlias which is not an attribute so I'm not
entirely sure where you are headed when you say the 'mail alias will be
automatically enforced' but I'm interested.
