If you're using schema-aware LDAP clients which load the whole subschema
subentry you save bandwidth and client-side processing. My web2ldap caches the
pre-parsed subschema subentry for a part of the DIT but the initial
loading/parsing of really big subschema subentries (>500 kB) is significant on
older systems.
