as i responded to the previous poster i would keep it separated for the 
following reasons

- We will need a new version of openldap to include this before jessie, 
because fusiondirectory-insert-schema use schema2ldif to help users insert 
all kind of schema easily

- An update in schema2ldif would need a new update of openldap 

- we could extend it to other directories, 389 comes to my mind

For all those reason i would like to keep it separated
