Hello Björn,
2000 is almost 20 years ago. I hope you are not trying to implement a brand new 2000 server! 
More seriously, are you asking about complimentary schema LDIF files for Server 2000 (Schema version 13)? I gather that you might be looking into LDIF for Versions 13, 30, 31, 44, 47. Is that a correct assumption?
Can you comment why you would need those old ldf files? With the combined schema for 2008 R2, nothing restricts from setting functional level to 2000. 
It is true that if you are looking for delta schema classes between each Windows Server release, versioning is described but scattered over the protocol specs. 
The good news is that we have schema files published for Windows Server 2008 R2 through 1903 available at 
Combined Active Directory Schema Classes and Attributes for Windows Server
Date Published 9/7/2019

Note that in [MS-ADTS] Schema NC
The correspondence between Windows releases and values of the schema container objectVersion is the following:
§	Windows 2000 Server: 13
§	Windows Server 2003: 30
§	Windows Server 2003 R2: 31
§	Windows Server 2008 (AD DS): 44
§	Windows Server 2008 R2 (AD DS): 47
§	Windows Server 2012 (AD DS): 56
§	Windows Server 2012 R2 (AD DS): 69
§	Windows Server 2016 (AD DS): 87
§	Windows Server v1709 (AD DS): 87
§	Windows Server v1803 (AD DS): 88
§	Windows Server v1809 (AD DS): 88
§	Windows Server 2019 (AD DS): 88

Hello Dochelp,

in the windowsserverdocs at github:


the schema LDIF files starting from schema version 58 are currently documented. I found another dochelp request from Andrew back from 2010 asking for the text Schema files starting from Windows Server 2000 (schema version 13). The older schema files were announced to come "some weeks later" but it seems like they were not published yet.

We have some need for those old ldf files and need them being made available publicly to use them. Can you look into this once more, please?

Thank you
