 Do you think it would make sense to implement a mechanism to replicate
schema files and have the server automatically load them upon reciept?

 Consider a network where there are 50 or more LDAP servers; adding a new
schema file and restarting the servers is a major task. And adding schema
into a catch-all file is not a good solution; it makes maintenance
next to impossible...
