I think I'll have to talk to others here to give you a definitive answer
to this question, but this is mainly to give the schema a "home" to stay
together with where the OIDs have been allocated?

So basically what is needed is _one_ schema file. Defining the
attributes once and then at the end list both dNSZone and dNSDomain2
object classes. Right?

Sounds nice to me. I could perhaps ask others here if a fitting place to
have this schema distributed is via the OID registry page at UNINETT.
Does this sound ok to you?
