    Ron and Gary,

    About indenting by 3 spaces (we've never done it for IPP drafts, but the RFC
    editor went to the trouble of changing the text for us and inserting the
    three leading spaces). So doing it ahead of time will help get things done
    faster, I would assume.

    You could redefine the plain text style to be indented 3 spaces. However,
    you'd want to introduce another style for the actual MIB which doesn't want
    to be intended. Also in the text portion there are several excerpts from
    other MIBs that already have leading spaces and will cause line wrap if they
    are indented an additional 3 spaces for the plain text style.

    So may if the plain text styles for MIB data is changed to some new style,
    say, mib, which doesn't have the indent, that it will be straightforward.

    Without having actually opened the document for editing, I'd say that these
    items look do-able, to be released next week, after the 'last call' period
