Hum... I'm confused...
You just said the opposite in your first mail: "[...] modification is not stored on disk in

from outside the server, but it's always possible to modify the rootDSE subschemaSubentry
attribute, as it contains all the loaded schema element. This will, in fact, impact the cn=schema,
as it's just a LDAP exposition of the loaded schema.

Hum... I'm confused again...
To my knowledge, 'subschemaSubentry' attribute value points to the "cn=schema" DN and that's
in this particular entry that you can access the schema elements (via 'attributeTypes', 'comparators',
[etc.] attributes).
I'm 100% sure 'subschemaSubentry' attribute does not contain any loaded schema element.
