Hi,
   The Security Guidelines for IETF MIB modules says
    Some of the readable objects in this MIB module (i.e., objects
    with a MAX-ACCESS other than not-accessible) may be considered
    sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments.

This seems to imply that objects that have MAX-ACCESS not-accessible
are not "readable". But the objects can very well be "read" from the
index, if the MO is an index object.
Then "not-accessible" objects too may be sensitive or vulnerable ?
Have I missed something.
