The current text for prtInputMediaName is:

prtInputMediaName OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX OCTET STRING (SIZE(0..63))
MAX-ACCESS read-write
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"A description of the media contained in this input sub-
unit; This description is intended for display to a
human operator. This description is not processed by the
printer. It is used to provide information not
expressible in terms of the other media attributes (e.g.
prtInputMediaDimFeedDirChosen,
prtInputMediaDimXFeedDirChosen, prtInputMediaWeight,
prtInputMediaType). An example would be 'legal tender
bond paper'."
::= { prtInputEntry 12 }

I suggest that a reference to Appendix C be added. The proper way is
with a REFERENCE clause, according to David Perkins, rather than additional
text in the DESCRIPTION. The updated result would be:

prtInputMediaName OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX OCTET STRING (SIZE(0..63))
MAX-ACCESS read-write
STATUS current
