Instead of "in the OLS world", you meant to say "in the fixed effect linear regression world". OLS world does not bother about variables that are constant for a bunch of observations, as long as they vary somewhat across the whole data set. But fixed effect regression does. Random effect regression doesn't, just like the OLS.
