I have no objection to that, but should be last resort if we have no
other way IMO, and valid only for objects that are not normally created
on a daily basis, as old replicas creating new objects would not know to
add the new objectclass.
In this case it seem like we should be ok as we do not commonly create
these objects, so the chances an old replica creates them are
