Chris,

My curiosity is particularly piqued by your comment

" At the moment, it appears that traps were used to lock a given
printer into a given management application, and to lock out other
printers. This is referred to as "using SNMP to provide open,
standard, proprietary solutions." This is exactly the kind of thing
we are trying to prove that we did not do. "


That most certainly was not the intention of trap implementations done
by DPI. Do you have some specific information on such a use?
