    Ira McDonald has proposed the addition of 'percent(19)'
    to the textual conventions 'PrtCapacityUnitTC' and

    I believe that this can be accomplished during the
    RFC Editors cycle.

    If anyone has any objections to this new enumeration
    please state your reasons before December 18, 2000.

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

    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)'

    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.
