My understanding is the a 50% change would be massive.  To change 50% of a
MIB from proposed to draft is huge!  I expect that anything near 50% change
would mean going back to square 1.  I was under the impression that the
allowable changes would be an order of magnitude less than that.

I thought that when we did rfc1759 we prepared it in a way that was v2
compliant.  Perhaps the meaning of v2 is changing faster than we are.  Our
efforts were to produce a MIB that could work with either v1 or v2.
