Re: submitted draft-ietf-eos-snmpxproto-mib-00.txt


The ability for vendors to add new PDU types (operation types) is
I believe counter to the core principle of the IETF, which is to
value interoperation above all other factors.

 From a practical perspective, to add a new PDU type (operation type),
an assignment must be made from a flat name-space which is controlled
by the IETF/IANA. Thus, there is no gain from identifying such assignments
by an OID value outside the control of the IETF/IANA.
