Is there (yet another) RFC that covers this? 

PS - Why shouldn't I modify a published schema if the published schema is conceived with faulty or lacking standard-compliance?  Your link to the discussion with the Samba group seems to indicate a scenario similar to mine, which warranted (and affected?) a change to the schema.

Guess I'll join the general list for this.  Sorry to bring it here.  I'm happy to discuss it offline.
