Removing/modifying LDAP objectclasses/attributes using olc

I’m having trouble using openldap’s olc to modify a schema without shutting down the server. To test some things out, I made the following schema:

objectIdentifier tests        orgUlyssisOID:4
objectIdentifier testAttribute    tests:1
objectIdentifier testObjectClass  tests:2

attributeType ( testAttribute:1 NAME 'attr1'
        DESC 'attribuut 1'
        SYNTAX '' )

attributeType ( testAttribute:2 NAME 'attr2'
        DESC 'attribuut 2'
        SUP userPassword
        SINGLE-VALUE )

objectclass ( testObjectClass:1 NAME 'class1'
    DESC 'objectclass 1'
    SUP top
    MUST (attr1 $ attr2 ) )

And added it to a new schema called test. (cn={9}test.ldif in cn=schema).
Now I can’t seem to figure out how to delete class1 from that schema.
I use the following LDIF (and tried lots of variations too, to no avail)

dn : cn={9}test,cn=schema,cn=config
changetype: modify
delete: olcObjectClasses 
olcObjectClasses: ( testObjectClass:1 NAME 'class1' DESC 'objectclass 1' SUP top STRUCTURAL MUST ( attr1 $ attr2 ) )

Running ldapmodify -x -W -D cn=admin,cn=config -f test.ldif -d 0 gives no output. -d 1 gives this:

So no real indication of an error. Where am I doing it wrong?
Bonus question: If I have some entries of a certain objectclass, can I modify it (add/remove attributeTypes) without removing the entries?

Thanks in advance for all help.
