    I am not sure why we are now trying to make all these changes to the MIB.
    A need was identified to add unknown(2) to PrtChannelTypeTC for the Port
    Monitor MIB. Expanding this request to other TCs is out of scope. If a
    need for these other enums occurs later on they can be added then. In the
    mean time, let's just fix the identified problem.

    Subject: PMP> Updates for IANA Printer MIB

    Hi folks, Monday (25 July 2005)

    Below are proposed updates for missing 'out-of-band' values to three
    textual conventions defined in the IANA-PRINTER-MIB. These missing
    'unknown(2)' values were technical errors in Printer MIB v1 (RFC 1759)
    and Printer MIB v2 (RFC 3805).

    These updates will allow the new Printer Port Monitor MIB to use a
    syntax of PrtChannelTypeTC for the ppmPortProtocolType object (as
    recently requested by Bert Wijnen). These updates should also improve
    interoperability among Printer MIB implementations (they are all the
    appropriate default values).

    After review, these additions should be sent to IANA for registration
    in the IANA-PRINTER-MIB by our Designated Experts, Bert Wijnen and Harry
