    Hi,

    Implementors here at Sharp have found a serious problem with
    'prtInputCurrentLevel', 'prtOutputRemainingCapacity' and
    'prtMarkerSuppliesLevel'.

    Their related units objects need 'percent(19)' added to
    allow reporting of RELATIVE levels (often the only
    information known from sensors).

    - 'PrtCapacityUnitTC' should have 'items(18)' (per Ron B
      and Harry L) and 'percent(19)' added
    - 'PrtMarkerSuppliesSupplyUnitTC' should have 'percent(19)'
      added

    BOTH of these textual conventions should also have 'other(1)'
    and 'unknown(2)' added - this would provide short-term
    relief to the NEXT product team that finds a missing unit
    AFTER the Printer MIB v2 is published as an RFC.

    Cheers,
    - Ira McDonald, consulting architect at Sharp
