I think that is more worse when one wants to use the API as a client.
IMO the usage of the API must be lightweight. If I startup my program
to just do a search I probably don't want that a schema is loaded at
all, because it is just too heavy. Can we have a DummySchemaManager
implementation, that just does no validation and normalization?

Kind Regards,
