Currently no one is editing RFC1905. I started to capture
some of these things in the extended protocol MIB ID, and
if there is interest, I can release an update to the ID.
I do agree that if we are improving error messages, we want
to avoid human-only readable objects like display strings.
Enumerated integers that could optionally be mapped to
human-readable text seem to be the best way to improve error
The accessible-for-response idea seems too expensive when
looking at current protocol operations. It might fare
better if applied specifically to one of the new PDUs,
like simplified sets.
