Yes you do. This change is significant in AD terms and will require
discussion with your domain admins.

When I tested this, I needed to do the schema modifications with a 10g
client. There are a bunch of notes on metalink about this issue (Bug
2940674 for example). NB this doesn't mean you need your databases or
clients to be at 10g, just that the schema modifications needed to be
at 10g.

OID isn't required, it might be a good idea though in terms of getting
the most support out of Oracle.
