As you have guessed, your mail has arrived after I sent out the message..   
However, talking to our developers here, they are more concern with   
counter incrementing for both critical & warning alerts. As an example,   
even if there is no critical error present, finding out that the toner is   
getting low, or you are out of paper in tray 1 is as important. So, we   
want to filter out everything else from the counter object which are   
informational, or possibly classified as other. This way, we could still   
have only one object added to the MIB, and if the management application   
is interested in all the changes that occurs in the alert table, they   
would simply poll. Any comments from other developers??

I was thinking in terms of sending a trap out with a alert code that   
indicates that alert table change has occurred (without entering it into   
the alert table). This would be a duplicate entry for critical errors,   
but might be useful for warnings.. Overall, I just wanted to assure we   
have covered all areas in the Printer MIB in terms of adding this new   
object.
