Re: snmpconf BCP Section 3.1

Wayne, hope you are better.

With regard to the proposed reorganization, I have two comments:

     1. The work on the document is not required to be complete by
     April 6. Our goal is to have the to do items enumerated by April
     6. I expect it may take another week or so for the BCP. The other
     documents may take more time because of other issues.

     2. I can see how so many items seems like a flat
     hierarchy. Perhaps you can proposed a reorganization using the
     current numbers and mapping to a new organization, then we would
     be able to see if it is worthwhile.
