I am afraid that, at least I, would need a bit more information than this on how the internal scenario would play out.  From my undoubtedly inadequate understanding, Web Jet Admin is an application that uses SNMP ( and perhaps other methods) to poll printers, and in turn provides a HTTP server to allow users to access that data so obtained. OpenView is an SNMP-based management application. 

Could Bob (or someone else) indicate what they expect of the WBMM in terms of providing a "plug-in" for the popular management apps? And the replacement of SNMP is necessary? Would this "plug-in" be, in fact, an HTTP server to receive reports from registered printers? Or is it just a common semantic for communicating with the printer? Or...??
