Hi folks,

As Lloyd said do not assume that if Bobby got it right, this current
draft (by Steve Waldbusser, original co-editor) also has it. Steve
appears to have started over from scratch to convert the MIB to
SMIv2 and then added back the printer detected error stuff. He
certainly took out Bobby's (correct per RFC 2277) clarification
that the default charset of the textual convention
'InternationalDisplayString' is UTF-8 and changed it to be
US-ASCII (which of course makes the datatype useless for
internationalization purposes).

There's a short window here for comment - speak up now or live
with it for *years* to come!

Cheers,
- Ira McDonald
