Just to be clear: The current document only describes the simple model
where "the guy who has something to say is responsible to open the
channel". The appendix only documents options that were discussed and
lists some trade-offs we identified.

I think this is the core of your comments, so lets focus on this one
first. Can you please justify the requirement? Why is it needed? What
is missing if this feature is not there?

Regarding <draft-irtf-nmrg-snmp-tcp-06.txt>, do you think there are
flaws in the discussion of this point in the last paragraph of the
appendix? If a notification originator accepts a new connection, does
it in your opinion have to match a preconfigured snmpTargetTable or
not? If not, how to you populate a new entry in the snmpTargetTable?
