Pick whatever naming scope you wish, just pick ONE.

We already have printer attributes, why not stick with em'.

Randy, I can't believe you said this. Is this security by
obscurity? OK,
rather than call them OIDs will pick random series of numbers
separated
by periods (that happen to match the MIB) to identify the
attributes we
want and call them PORN - "Printer Object Random Numbers"

Anyone object?
