    Does it make sense to have an alert in an "unknown" group? What is the
    reasoning?
    This is my only question. The rest of the changes look good.

    PMP> Updates for IANA Printer MIB

    Hi folks, Monday (25 July 2005)

    Below are proposed updates for missing 'out-of-band' values to three
    textual conventions defined in the IANA-PRINTER-MIB. These missing
    'unknown(2)' values were technical errors in Printer MIB v1 (RFC 1759)
    and Printer MIB v2 (RFC 3805).

    These updates will allow the new Printer Port Monitor MIB to use a
    syntax of PrtChannelTypeTC for the ppmPortProtocolType object (as
    recently requested by Bert Wijnen). These updates should also improve
    interoperability among Printer MIB implementations (they are all the
    appropriate default values).

    After review, these additions should be sent to IANA for registration
    in the IANA-PRINTER-MIB by our Designated Experts, Bert Wijnen and Harry
    Lewis.

    Comments?

    Cheers,
    - Ira (co-editor of Printer MIB v2)
