Thanks to all for the feedback.

In the meantime, I also found this page:
with useful info.

Looking at the web page above:

1. I'd not follow Jim's advice to use a different first number (although I much respect Jim's LDAP and eDirectory knowledge).

2. Two other responses also recommend using your own OID arc.

3. AFAICS the UUID-based OIDs do not allow structured OID assignments.

Personally if things are not working fast enough in a project I have defined a non-public customers OID arc under my own enterprise ID where several customers of mine who do not want to register an enterprise-ID themselves get their own OID arc. Yes, that requires some discipline on my side but it's not much work.

Ciao, Michael.
