    I remembered this morning why we decided, several months back, to remove this object.
    Since the MIB contained both a desciptive name and a description, it was agreed that
    the two objects were redundant. To clarify this situation I recommend that the object
    ppmPortName be changed to ppmPortDescriptiveName or ppmPortDescription, rather
    than go back to the original redundant pair.

    ppPortName is a natural language string with up to 127 characters. For Paul Danbold's
    example I could provide a name such as:

            "Networked LPR port providing binary PostScript printing for use by marketing"

    This is less than 80 characters and should be more than sufficient to satisfy Paul's
    requirement.

    Also, in addition to a possible name change, it must be noted that this object is
    expected to be administratively configured using an out-of-band method.

    Paul, please indicate if this is sufficient.
