I don't think this is neccesary, or even a really good idea.  If an
organization wants to create schema, then make them go through the
trouble of getting an OID.

Each organization having a unique OID could also make organizing such a
publish-your-schema site much easier.

I don't see any need to create a situation where definitions OID will
change when it become "popular".  Real application projects like Horde,
Samba, etc... just go get their own OIDs anyway.  OIDs are free.
