Hi Bill,

Two suggested changes/corrections for WIMS meeting slides - thanks.

* WIMS meeting slide 6, bullet 1

change "MFD alert conditions" 
to "Scanner, ScanMediaPath, and FaxModem subunits"

- you've already said alerts earlier in the bullet (conditions is redundant)
- let's be clear about the minor scope of this spec

* WIMS meeting slide 8, bullet 3

change "one of 33 (out of 60)..." 
to "one of 23 (out of 37) TCs identified in RFC3805 as a Type 1 (para

- this corrects the confusing "NOT a Type 2" original phrasing
- please also add the link below to the list of all RFC 3805 TCs.


Clarifications about counts and status of the Type 1 and Type 2 
TCs defined in RFC 3805.

Unfortunately, RFC 3805 is full of ASN.1 comments using the keyword
string "TEXTUAL-CONVENTION", so my original counts were high.

I just did some careful hand-edits to my string search results and stored

The correct counts are:

IANA-PRINTER-MIB (Type 2 TCs - can be changed) 
- 14 new TCs defined in RFC 3805

Printer-MIB (Type 1 TCs - cannot be changed) 
- 19 new TCs defined in RFC 3805
- 4 old TCs (from 1759) deprecated in RFC 3805 - never used in MIB

- 1 new TC imported by RFC 3805 - IANACharset
