What I mean is the state of the policy. For example you will have seen
postings leading up to the last IETF where a policy can be overridden by the
CLI for example or a policy can be superseded by another. Thus the answer to
your question above is policy as an entry in the Policy Table and policy in
the tables you reference below.  To the best of what I know, the SNMPCONF
work has not yet explicitly used the term 'condition'.

Your term, policy condition here is not clear to me. Additionally we do
width to have the state information visible via MIB Objects as described

I agree when there is a good fit like I think there is in the Schedule MIB
Module. I do not think the script mib as anywhere near as good a fit.
