    I believe Ian McDonald followed the SLP to LDAP translation draft for this
    schema, described in draft-ietf-svrloc-template-conversion-05.txt.
    The OIDs you refer to are intended to be part of any schema, and
    are included in the instructions the draft gives for translation.
    If there is some problem with these OIDs, then I would appreciate
    advice about how to get them changed in the draft and not just
    for the specific case of the printer schema (I am a coauthor of the draft).
    A review earlier this year by an LDAP expert indicated no problem
    with the OIDs, so I assumed they were OK.
