Juergen,

not sure where we really landed with this. I see 6991bis-00 is available 
but without any of these types. I still think these data types makes 
sense and would like to see them included. There are some people against 
and there are some people for. Would it help if I wrote a few lines of 
YANG for this and sent to you?

Kind regards,
    Kristian.
