No, the problem I have is really more related to the way we load the 
SyntaxCheckers in ADS : AcceptAllSyntaxChecker can take any kind of OID, 
including none. This generate a NPE in the new schema handler, and I 
would like to avoid crippling the code with workarounds for such null OIDs.

I don't think so. Here is the grammar for this element :

 From RFC 4517 :
 OctetString = *OCTET
 From RFC 4512 :
 OCTET   = %x00-FF ; Any octet (8-bit data unit)

Yes, assuming you handle the conversion. But if you know that your 
attribute is containing text, it's probably better to pick another 
syntax for it.
