What a blast from the past.  

This is "not an error" , at least as reported.  Three are two places this error might have been reported from - the definition of  docsBpiCmAuthState and  the definition o fdocsBpiCmTEKState.  The former -  I believe correctly -does not include "start (1)" as one of its states.  The latter has "start (1),"  - e.g. including the comma.  So I'm not sure where he's actually seeing the error.

The  MIB  was verified at submission.  I would be surprised if there are any obvious syntactic errors like this in the body of the MIB.

If I remember correctly, the reason the "start" state was excluded from the docsBpiCmAuthState enums is that its never a visible state - the state machine doesn't actually exist until docsIfCmStatusValue is at least todEstablished - (RFC4546) and the state would always be later than "start" so any query about baseline privacy will not necessarily give you valid information prior to todEstablished.
