Hi Thomas,

The WIMS WG discussed your request at our teleconference yesterday
and reached the following consensus:


(1) add ‘hundredthsOfInkSticks(20)’ to ‘PrtMarkerSuppliesSupplyUnitTC’
     - rejected - rationale: TC in Printer MIB module - requires new RFC
     - but PWG Steering Committee has asked WIMS WG to consider a
       Printer MIB v3 (moving TCs to IANA Printer MIB) at December F2F
       (this would require several years given IETF process delays)
     - recommendation - use 'percent' for now

(2) add ‘standardToner(35)’ to ‘PrtMarkerSuppliesTypeTC’
     - rejected - rationale: 'standard' is the default of any supply type
(Mike S)
     - recommendation - treat any unmodified supply type as 'standard'

(3) add ‘matteToner(35)’ to ‘PrtMarkerSuppliesTypeTC’
     - accepted - rationale: widely used distinct toner type (Mike S)

Also:
(4) add 'matteInk(36)' ‘PrtMarkerSuppliesTypeTC’
     - rationale: widely used distinct toner type (Mike S)

I will send these registrations to IANA shortly.

Cheers,
- Ira (one of IETF Designated Experts for Printer MIB, along w/ Mike Sweet)
