The implication are not that complex to handle on the server. Right now, 
the cn=schema subschema subentry, which is a mandatory element to have, 
is generated from the registries content. It has no existence per se. On 
the other hand, the ou=schema is a real entry and is also the 
contextEntry of the schema partition (which naming context is ou=schema).

Merging both will imply that this element will be completed before being 
returned when a client do a search operation.
