As the CSN is mostly used for replication only, for 1.5.5 I would say +1 for this

+1, I think this will ease the schema injection and eliminates the need for creating
a custom schema partition, which was a recurring question on user's ML
A question here, how do we detect the schema changes?
I think that a full scan of cn=schema partition is necessary at every time server stars.
