As long as it's not an RFC defined schema, then yes, I would suggest
modifying it to suit your needs and then exporting/importing the data.
However, I would keep this in mind for any applications you're
developing if they will be using any RFC defined schema that do not have
matching rules defined to ensure they can handle this case correctly.
Thus I'd consider any attribute type description with non-binary syntax
but without EQUALITY matching rule to be worth an errata for this RFC.
It's a real pity that we didn't manage to resurrect ldapext WG.
This would be also a useful work item.
