It is my understanding that the document status, for a Standards Track
RFC, is not reported on the published specification and the status can
change without requiring a new RFC to be issued. Therefore, I do not see
where we would do any extra work by publishing our updated Printer MIB
today as a Proposed Standard.
The efforts to achieve Draft Standard status can proceed as planned if the
MIB is published or held. But publishing the MIB now has the advantage of
making it "official".
I support immediate publication of the MIB as a Proposed Standard.
