I can't speak exactly for DHCP, but for DNS we went through the same 
thought process:  is there something existing we can use rather than 
re-invent.  Unfortunately, we found it was easier to design our own DNS 
schema, though we did use the existing one to at least get things 
running and learn how a well-designed schema would look.

I'm not surprised and I don't think any of us have any objection to 
removing it.  If you'd like, we are interested in a well-designed DHCP 
schema and we can allocate a range of OID.
