Hi Rick,
I propose moving them up to an 'A', because the light table is
otherwise not very interesting to a management application.

Forgot to ask this today.  How does one tell remotely if a console light is
turned on, e.g., some warning light?  The only method I can find is to look
at the light times.  If OnTime is nz and OffTime is z, then the light is on,
supposedly, I think; and v-v, if OnTime is z and OffTime is nz, thenthe
light is off.  We didn't want these properties to be writable, as they were
spec'ed in the MIB, because no one ever used them to blink the lights.  But
they might be very useful to read if the controller manipulates them
properly.  Anyone have any idea if controllers actually do that?  If so, do
we want perhaps to promote these to A or still leave it up to the vendor as
