Subject: Re: DECnet IV MIB issues...

For what it's worth, the network management model for DECnet Phase IV, as
reflected in the MIB was done around 1982, in spite of, and slightly
contaminated by, considerable design by committee.

There is an answer in the works for the multiple instance problem, which is a
concern for bridges and repeaters, too.  It's the Chassis MIB (the directory),
in combination with either SNMPv1 community strings or SNMPv2 parties (the
selectors).
