Me too. Searching for *all* entries using a disabled schema is obviously an
expensive operation. The semantic of Disabled should be something like :
"you can read entries which use the disabled AT and OC, but you cannot add
such disabled objects".

I guess so. Alex ? Ersin ?

Well, my opinion is that when a schema is disabled, you can anymore create
an object using one of its AT or OC, and you can't modify an existing entry
to use the disabled AT and OC.

wdyt ?
