PWG members,

I am Norio Iwamoto working for Fuji Xerox in Japan. The following is a
simple editorial comment about prtMarkerSuppliesColorantIndex.

The newest printer MIB draft says:

prtMarkerSuppliesColorantIndex OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX Integer32 (0..65535)
MAX-ACCESS read-only
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"The value of prtMarkerColorantIndex corresponding to
the colorant with which this marker supply sub-unit is
associated. This value shall be 0 if there is no
colorant table."
::= { prtMarkerSuppliesEntry 3 }

I think this DESCRIPTION should be modified, for example to:

"The value of prtMarkerColorantIndex corresponding to
the colorant with which this marker supply sub-unit is
associated. This value shall be 0 if there is no
colorant table or if this supply does not depend on a
single specified colorant."

A typical example that does not depend on a single specified colorant is
'fuser' and 'wasteToner'.

I know this may be too late for the new Printer MIB, but please try to
consider it if possible.

Thanks in advance,

//Norio
