[WIMS] Proposal - Power Log only on System object

[ Thinking about the Power MIB in relation to the
Printer MIB (especially prtAlertTable and trap) ]

I propose that Power Log occurs only on System

DMTF CIM (and Printer MIB and other IETF MIBs)
instantiates logs only on whole Systems or Devices
(but not on minor components like Subunits).

DMTF CIM won't *let* us put a log on a minor
component, so the current Power Model has a
serious mapping issue.

I propose that the revised Power Log group
should have the same single key (LogID) and
two new elements named:

- existing powMonitorComponentType in MIB
- add new powMonitorComponentIndex in MIB

which, in turn, correspond to prtAlertGroup and
prtAlertGroupIndex in Printer MIB.

Both ComponentType and ComponentID are
implicit in the XML Schema - first is the enclosing
object type and second is either '1' for System or
<subunit>ID (like InputTrayID / prtInputIndex).
