I've done this successfully (and indeed heavily use the new attributes
and objectclasses I have added).

I've got a .cmd batch file that does it automatically if run as a
domain admin user (enterprise admin user?) on a DC.

>From my batch file:

ECHO Adding attributes ...
CALL :ldifimport AD-my-attribs.ldif

ECHO Forcing schema cache update ...
CALL :ldifimport AD-schemaupdate.ldif

ECHO Adding classes ...
CALL :ldifimport AD-my-classes.ldif

The contents of AD-schemaupdate.ldif is as follows:
changetype: modify
add: schemaUpdateNow
schemaUpdateNow: 1

The whole process works automatically, I can share the batch file if
it helps anyone.
