I think this sentence is clear.

No. A partition is not the root of a directory tree. A partition is like 
a mounted file system : it has a name, which is the suffix, but it 
describe all the entries it contains. By extension, when we are talking 
about "partition x=y", that means "the partition which suffix is x=y".

That's correct (and I think we can add it in 1.5 doco : 1.0 does not 
have a cn=schema partition)

Just click on the top right little grey icon of each page on the web 
site, you will gain access to the edit page. If ypu can't do that, then 
we can add you to the list of people allowed to update the 
documentation. Just tell us.
