CR = command responder
NR = command generator

Yes, that's what I'd expect.

However, this brings up another point.  Are you allowed to specify
where the TRAP PDU is sent to, or are you only allowed to tell the
host the script is running on "send this trap" and it's up to the
entity in question to send it to it's list of configured receivers.  I
could see arguments advocating one, the other, and both.
