Anyone know whether multiple inheritance is supported when defining schema

No. If you e.g. define exactly the same object class twice, slapd stops
with a 'duplicate objectclass' error message. (You need to start it
with the '-d 0 (or a higher number)' option to see the error message.)

LDAP allows two different OIDs to have the same textual name if they are
in a different name space, e.g. you can have a 'foo' object class with
one OID, and a 'foo' attribute type with another OID.

On the other hand, SUP can have multiple values, allowing an objectclass to inherit attributes independently from two or more objectclasses, and OpenLDAP supports this.
