SNMP was in the back of my mind as I was writing the draft (and I assume 
the minds of my coauthors) but as  I did not expect that the draft was 
anywhere near it's final form and really only wanted to get people to 
start thinking about statistics and other corporate needs I felt that at 
the time it was better to start with the base that I did and work from 
there to get a concensious rather than try to force ideas down peoples 
throats. Excepting the MUST/MAY language which I did force down peoples 
throats expecting it to be "excised with extreme prejudice" in the final 
form of the draft and that produced the nice solution from Ryan Eatmon 
to my component/server support problem.
