Unfortunately, this problem does affect the design and
implementation of the printer MIB on some printers, and
constrains the jobmib work, as well.
A working group was formed to address the problem: the Agent X
(agent extensibility) Working Group. They have been meeting for
about a year, and have a preliminary proposal.

This IETF Working Group, printmib, is *NOT* chartered to do this work.
If this is an issue for your current and future product
implementations, then I strongly recommend participating or monitoring
the work in the agentx working group.
