I am not so sure how much agreement there has been on this issue. I
understand that you have a strong opinion here, I am less sure that 
this opinion has become WG consensus. 

As I said before: If these TCs are generic, they must go into a separate 
module since I do not want depend on an extension of the entity MIB and
hence also on the entity MIB just because I want to use these generic 
TCs in another MIB. If the TCs are not generic (or we do not know yet), 
lets be conversative and give the names the Ent... prefix.
