Re: snmpconf Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: WG last call on draft-ietf-snmpconf-bcp-06.txt


Yes, fixing 3.3.5 and the beginning of 7., 
but leaving the example in 7.1 would work.

I have not seen Jon's response to the other concerns. 
Would you please forward that message?

It clearly defines snmpconf as a latest-example of a system supporting policy abstraction directly using SNMP, and the bibliographic reference is to a work-in-progress.  I'd vote that this isn't dictating anything or outlining a highly current practice, but merely being illustrative as to new developments in the practice, and hence, is appropriately framed for your concerns.
