    Hi Ron,

    We have 'unknown(2)' defined in EVERY other textual convention
    in IANA Printer MIB and Printer MIB v2 modules, except these
    three - I've been writing workarounds for Xerox and Sharp
    implementors (for appropriate default values) for five years.

    One bug - three occurrences - one CR to fix it.

    Cheers,
    - Ira
