Hi Andy,

This makes sense to me.  Does anyone have an objection to this plan?

Could one of the people who felt strongly that these objects should 
be included in the Entity MIB update please respond to Andy's request 
for more information?

If there is no one who care enough about these objects to do actual 
work to finalize them, perhaps Andy should just leave them out and we 
can get the Entity MIB update published?
