Keith (and others), I can't help with the "studied" part, but I can with the "distributed". I'm attaching the individual submission that Kwok and I wrote to define these two textual conventions. For smnpconf people who weren't present in Knoxville, I had hoped I could wait until after the meeting minutes came out before posting this draft, so that there would be some context for it. But it's time for other people to see the draft, and in any case, the cutoff date for new Internet-Drafts is now only two days away. I've also copied firstname.lastname@example.org: could y'all please post this document in the individual submissions part of the Internet-Drafts repository? Thanks.

It is my understanding that those "MIB experts" who were not present in Knoxville, are having trouble reconciling the several differently- garbled versions of said discussions. I don't think you can posit a consensus until the written description has been distributed and studied. Keith.
