OpenLDAP usually is very strict regarding schema parsing but provides some flags
to be more liberal (constants LDAP_SCHEMA_ALLOW_* in ldap_schema.h).

But even if LDAP_SCHEMA_ALLOW_ALL is used e.g. the following object class
definition is not accepted:

objectClasses: ( inetsubscriber-oid NAME 'inetSubscriber' SUP top 
AUXILIARY MAY ( inetSubscriberAccountId $ inetSubscriberChallenge $ 
inetSubscriberResponse ) X-ORIGIN 'Nortel subscriber interoperability')

standard. But unfortunately most LDAP servers contain definitions like this...
