Thanks for picking this up. I am on the road all this week and
have had little time to spend on other work items. I have some
time this morning so you should see a flurry of notes from me.
Based on Bob's note and Jay's response that the chPort9100 channel
type can continue to be used on current products but not in future
implementations, I do not see any problem in deprecating this channel

Subject: Deprecate chPort9100 channel type?
The 10/18 teleconference minutes included:
1. Lloyd Young will post a "Request for Objections" message to the PWG
list asking whether anyone would object to the deprecation of the
chPort9100 channel type in the new Printer MIB draft.
I haven't seen Lloyd's "Request for Objections" message, but I'll go ahead
HP LaserJet printers with an HP JetDirect card will report chPort9100 for
one of the prtChannelType objects.
It can be deprecated but my understanding of deprecated objects just means
"Please don't use in the future." HP will continue to use that value until
we have a new implementation.
