I'm very sorry about my ignorance but I wouldn't exactly call that whole
OID thing well documented. I remeber doing several hours of RTFM and STFW
when I first started writing my own schema entries without very much more
success than knowing that *companies* can apply for one. Since I'm a
private person I chose to concentrate on getting it to work first before
going through all that, not even knowing whether I'll use the whole thing
in the end. And call me an idiot but I didn't know that there is a
reserved OID space.
