Well, putting definitions in the code is basically related to the need
of using those definitions internally for some purpose.  I think this
need was discussed at some point, in view of the availability of
back-config, and Howard correctly pointed out that the load sequence
could be formalized a little bit more, to require:

- load standard track schema
- load modules (module-specific schema can be defined by modules)
- load global configuration
- load databases

In this way, there would be no need to have hardcoded standard track
items, provided those required by slapd are loaded at some point.
