You're just proposing that we ignore this "Update" that might have never happened and certainly no-one paid any attention to.

The new registry browser defined the "Update" and that seems to have screwed things up:
https://refeds.terena.org/index.php/SCHAC_Plan
https://urnreg.terena.org/browser/browser-oid.php?go=1.3.6.1.4.1.25178.1

There wasn't a release of SCHAC this crazy redefinition. So "Yes". I agree with your - lets just go back to the "Original" version and ignore the incorrect redefining of OID branches.
