Nope, as specifically stated on the page from which he retrieved the
schema, they are provided AS IS: "I don't endorse the suitability of any
of these files for any purpose. If you are going to install schema in
your DSA then you need to **understand** what you are doing.".  

I am not the author of most of the schemas on that page, they are simply
collected.  If the schema file is wrong it may contain an author in the
comments, or it misrepresents the RFC, or the RFC is not viable;  not
impossible for something used as rarely as LDAP+SLP.
