The simplest way to test this is to try this on two standalone nodes, one
running R15B and the other R16B. I've tried this, and had no problem
joining an R15B-1 node into an R16B-2 node.

You say "trying to join", how exactly are you doing this? When a node joins
an existing mnesia installation, it should not have a schema of its own.
