      I *believe* the reason you create the .conf file with all the
schemas yours depend on is because it somehow needs to know its
dependencies to continue.

Yes, if I'm going to use slaptest to generate an LDIF file that doesn't have any comments, I will need to build a .conf file that includes all the schemas that mine depends on.  I don't want to use slaptest because I want comments in my LDIF file.  I don't see any argument for slaptest that would maintain the comments in the generated LDIF schema file(s).
