This was removed for a reason:
A far less intrusive alternative would be to allow setting a custom overrides schema via an environment variable or command line switch.

That would be great - we're creating a new X session anyway, so we can set a variable or command line switch (which is already done to set the mode).
When can we expect a fix?
The latest RHEL 7.5 build adds an --override-schema option as requested.
