We do not need it always, only when we are a domain member, probably.

In this case we wont need any schema extension.
Another thing we might explore is to store data in the application
partition, we can do that without changing the schema, although I do not
like the solution too much, it sill allows to use idmapping without
schema changes and have data replicated.

I guess we will return on this later.
