IMO too many prerequisites must be perfectly full-filled and thus is too
That's one of the things where e.g. OpenDS/OpenDJ does a much better job
with its cn=config:
The schema shipped with the server is stored in various LDIF files in a
config directory along with file rootdse.ldif holding cn=config. Schema
directly added by modifying cn=schema is sent to a separate user schema
With such a layout the standard schema shipped with the software is not
part of cn=config but can still be dynamically changed (by directly
modifying subschema subentry). But there's always a way out of trouble
because you can manually fix the separate LDIF schema file(s).
