Hi Rick,

Mea culpa.

MFD Alerts was published the same month that I left Samsung and
I went straight to another high-pressure client and project and just
plain forgot to IANA register the Printer MIB updates.

There is also a pending errata update against this document for the
correct use of "-error" and "-warning" suffixes (i.e., should use them
in IPP, but I will *remove* them from the Printer MIB enums, since
the separate prtAlertSeverityLevel object should be used there).

The update to MFD Alerts is the highest priority editing task that I'll
start on in January 2017.  It also needs to be poured into the new
PWG document template.  Mike Sweet will help me with editorial
problems and the update to the very large IANA Considerations
section.

Cheers,
- Ira
