    I remembered this morning why we decided, several months back, to remove this object.
    Since the MIB contained both a desciptive name and a description, it was agreed that
    the two objects were redundant. To clarify this situation I recommend that the object
    ppmPortName be changed to ppmPortDescriptiveName or ppmPortDescription, rather
    than go back to the original redundant pair.

    ppPortName is a natural language string with up to 127 characters. For Paul Danbold's
    example I could provide a name such as:

            "Networked LPR port providing binary PostScript printing for use by marketing"

    This is less than 80 characters and should be more than sufficient to satisfy Paul's

    Also, in addition to a possible name change, it must be noted that this object is
    expected to be administratively configured using an out-of-band method.

    Paul, please indicate if this is sufficient.
