ok, I saw this entry and wondered why this exists, now I understand.
There is an issue with this entry being present under the ou=schema cause it
gets in our way while reading by a schema loader (e.x NetworkSchemaLoader)
which assumes that all the elements under ou=schema at ONE level scope are
schema containers, so I would second the idea of having a last modified time
in ou=schema entry.

Having said this note that studio is a generic tool, the above said
works only when you
connected to ApacheDS

this could be set as an option in studio but is again, I think,
specific to ApacheDS
