snmpconf Re: SNMPCONF WG Notice: Policy Terminology Draft, Extended WG Last Call


Thanks for the additional poke. I have commented on previous versions of
this document. One of my original concerns still stands in that the
document often references the COPS protocols and not SNMP in the context
of Policy information. Specifics:

   1. There is no reference to SNMPCONF.

   2. There is an incorrect impression left by the definition of PIB and
   MIB that MIBs do not/can not carry policy information.  In fact the
   definition of a MIB points back to a PIB.

An additional comment:

   Policy Translation - This mixes access methods (such as CLI) with
   level of abstraction. If you want to call translation the thing you
   do when moving from one access method to another great. There is way
   too much in the current policy translation definition to be helpful I
   do not agree with the use of 'blurring' in this definition.
