Excellent idea.  However, would you agree that only the "base" or
"simple" component of the name should be used, and not the fully
qualified name?


For example, the Printer MIB has an object that describes the type
of a given input tray.  The fully qualified name is (as reported by
the CMU public domain software component "snmpwalk"):


  printmib.prtInput.prtInputTable.prtInputEntry.prtInputType


In this case, the name used in IPP would be simply "prtInputType".


Does this work for you?
