For historical purposes, it is a bit more complex than this.

It is not possible to include an operational attribute via the normal 
schema methods.  This depends on the "dsaschema" contrib overlay.  That 
contrib overlay requires development to support cn=config.

The alternative to using an operational attribute is to have a custom 
objectClass where the custom attribute desired is defined as an optional 
("MAY") attribute.
