    Ira,

    What are you going to return for prtInputMaxCapacity when
    prtInputCapacityUnit is 'percent'? 100? The same capacity unit is used for
    both max capacity and current level, and 'percent' fits one but not the
    other.

    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,
