The oss.oracle.com fedfs-utils home page has been deprecated, and will go away soon.  That site contains an outdated version of the NSDB schema.

Since then, we have attempted to address comments received from openldap-technical.  The version defined in the current IETF NSDB protocol draft, which you link to above, is the authoritative version.  We may see one or two more revisions as the draft goes through the final IESG review process.
