1. If HA is important you surely have more than one replica and a decent
fail-over mechanism.

2. Loading slapo-ppolicy and the schema file in one restart is trivial.

3. If you like more complex things you can add the module and the schema file
without restarting the server by using back-config.

Sorry. I don't see the problem.
