From a manager's point of view, I would like to know where I can find
all the write buttons for the various MIB modules supported by an
agent (and its third party agent extensions). (This might as well be
handy for policy scripts that try to enforce a certain storage policy.)

I think EOS if for protocol work. This has nothing to do with the
protocol - it is a MIB infrastructure issue. I think the best place
to discuss this would be <mibs@ops.ietf.org>. Bert, do you agree?
