Re: snmpconf FW: MIBs for events and notification logging

I think Mike has a good point. We do talk about configuration change
notifications in the BCP. If desired we could add a word or two about
persistence. Mike is right about that potentially being more
controversial. In several designs and implementations I have worked on
we have built internal facilities into the managed device to deal with
this persistence/alarm problem. 

We are still working on edits to the BCP. If anyone would
like to make a specific proposal that we can agree to on the WG list
over the next 5 days or so, we will be happy to include it.
