    I agree this is the best approach due to the pre-existing (high) level of
    interoperability.

    Sorry, this does not work as the new object would have a different
    OID. So forget about it.

    So I go back to my original position: Keep the notification as it is.
    Add a comment saying that the notification definition does not
    strictly comply to SMIv2 rules and that a proper fix (deprecating the
    notification and definition of a new notification) is considered too
    costly since fielded implementations interoperate just fine with the
    current definition.
