Hi Andrew, here is the current status of your request.

We have submitted a request to our product team to complete a validated and combined schema for Windows 2000, 2003, 2003R2, 2008 and 2008R2, incorporating all TDI’s submitted against [MS-ADA1], [MS-ADA2], [MS-ADA3], [MS-ADSC] and [MS-ADTS]. Please expect this to take at least several weeks before we have any results. I will keep you posted.

Also, please note that the text schemas in the SchemaTextFilesAndDisplaySpecifiers.zip I sent on Wed 6/30/2010 are the most recent we have provided, with the exception of the Windows 2008 files - 2k8\MS-AD_Schema_2K8_*.txt; 2k8\DisplaySpecifiers-Win2k8.txt  is current with the other display specifier text files.

In the meantime, if you aren’t already aware of the following blog entries, I would like to bring them to your attention, as they bear somewhat on your efforts. On the same topic, I have attached ‘DumpSchema.cmd.txt’, which will invoke ldifde.exe to dump a Windows 2xxx AD domain RootDSE and Configuration trees into .ldf files (it will ask if you want to change the domain/DC/user, which are preselected from environment variables).

Understanding the minimum set of DIT elements required by the first DC using MS-ADTS

Using the Windows Server Protocols documentation set to better understand the Active Directory Schema

Thanks for your patience!

No worries.  I would rather wait until you have absolute confidence that these schema files match the schema in Windows than spend time debugging why they don't match.
