Leaving aside the newly acquired requirement to get an
OID-space allocation before being permitted by the powers
that be to publish new schema (both a good thing and a
bad thing, IMO)...

Would it make sense to modify 1.x to accept and ignore the
non-applicable parts, such as OIDs, RFC2252 format entries?
This would seem to be a useful change.
