All entities publishing schema should obtain a registered OID
for such purposes.  OIDs are required for properly publishing
LDAPv3 schema items.

I suggest obtaining an "Private Enterprise Number" OID from IANA.
It's a simple as filling out a form (and is free):

(don't let the SNMP/MIB stuff confuse you, you can use the
OIDs as you choose).

Optionally, you can obtain OID from a national authority such
as ANSI.  But these are expense and offer no value over an IANA
assigned OID.

Once assigned, be sure to list your OID at:
