Some WGs use experimental (but even in those cases I recommend to
no reorder/change OID assignments; but of course we're not strict on
checking that; it is experimental after all). Some WGs agree on some
vendor subtree for the testing event only, so after the event it
goes back to nnnn up till approval.
