Tom,
The Printer MIB is closed to all changes. The only
exception is if someone declares (with strong
justification) that the Printer MIB is broken (not
functional) as it currently stands. I have not seen
any rationale that states that the the Printer MIB
is broken without the MIME-type object.

'automatic'

--------------- stuff deleted -----------------------
Printer MIB
-----------
We also discussed the suggestion from Munich that the Printer MIB
should add a new object to contain the MIME-type that corresponds to the
interpreter language. There was support for having BOTH the current
enum and the MIME-type and the both are useful. For example, the Printer
MIB still needs to indicate langAutomatic(37), since we would not be
adding the equivalent of the IPP "document-formats-detected" to the MIB.
For interpreter table entries that indicate langAutomatic(37), the
corresponding MIME-type name would be a zero-length string.
So we would reject the suggestion to make the prtInterpreterLangFamily
object
obsolete. We even can give the above reason not to deprecate it.

Comments?
