If I understand you correctly this would be in essence an extension of the openid schema which was earlier frowned upon.

The reason would be that we in the academia are using a schema (actually a set of schemas) which are quite well understood as to their semantics and syntaxes. The openid schema is not well known.
Hence for us it would be easier to get Openid Connect to work in our environment if the information returned from the user-info (eduPerson) endpoint was according to the schemas we know (and hate/love).

That would probably not be as necessary.
