I can see arguments for other means of distributing the knowledge information,
additional to the protocol described in RFC 1276.  Use of a file format is
one appraoch.   Another might be a stub server, whihc allows a standalone 
process to extract the information dynamically, which can be modified to 
allow output in a convenient format.

I don't understand why you are suggesting any new attributes and object
classes.  Can you explain why RFC 1276 does not suffice?
