This is correct.  We suggest all schema developers design schema using
the LDAPv3 information model and than backport their schema to OpenLDAP
1.x until such time that 2.x is released for general use.   The LDAPv3
informational model requires that each schema element be identified
by an OID.

See servers/slapd/schema/*.schema

Not completely.  That is, the code that implements the new information
model has yet to be committed.

How about RFC 2252 itself... and RFC 2256.  Or servers/slapd/schema/*.schema.
