Sorry for pulling the trigger on the wrong
words. I’m not questioning the value of the SNMPconf
work to date, rather an interest in seeing it take the next step towards
realizing (or not) a better managed network.

Just to be very clear, it has been
precisely stated by the IESG with respect to PIBs that the purpose of Proposed
status is not to find out how useful something is. If the usefulness of the
work is in question, then the IESG would only be consistent by progressing
the work to experimental or informational.
I believe the criteria there was to ask
who is implementing, and who is using it. Demonstrating 3GPP adoption and over
half-a-dozen implementations was not even enough to achieve
proposed status in the case of PIBs.

I'm glad to see this milestone has been
reached. I'm interested in promoting the advancement of network management an
I'm hopeful that the next step will advance the standard to a Proposed status
where we'll find out how useful (or not) SNMPconf is.
