Greetings,

David Harrington and Glenn Parsons both provide good reasons why the 
status of the IETF Bridge MIB modules should remain unchanged.

My question, however, concerned the Ethernet-related MIB modules in 
RFCs 2108, 3621, 3635, 3637, 4836, 4837, 4878, and 5066.  The 
situation for those is different.  New versions (rooted under 
different OIDs) have been published in IEEE Std 802.3.1, and the 
overview section of that document says that it "supersedes and makes 
obsolete" those RFCs.
