No. core.schema is an OpenLDAP-specific file containing
"core" schema.  Some of the core schema is "standard track",
some is not.

Some schema elements were re-classified and hence moved to
a different location.  In particular, "system schema" is
now not in core.schema but built in.  But the schema elements
were not changed (except to correct errors), they should
continue to match up with their published specifications.

Because 2.0 and 2.1 differ in how they organize schema elements
in off-line configuration files.  Organization of schema elements
in off-line configuration files is not covered by the LDAPv3
technical specification.
