Me too...

How to deal with that (except changing the schema files of other vendors)?

After chatting with Kurt, we confirmed that there was no reason to drop the alias from our schema files, so I've restored it. (Implementations are allowed to recognize multiple names for the same attribute. Since slapd still only generates the canonical name in its output, we are still conformant.)
