Part of the definition of backend-schema is that it is not pre-defined.
To pre-define it would create a whole host of issues, starting with the
need to keep it updated.

We already do some of the 'skip' stuff when working around hard-coded
attributes (see setup/schema-map-openldap-2.3).

At the moment, I think it's best to just use Microsoft's schema.
