There is a mechanism in SMIv2 that specifies the objects that a network
management application uses. It is called the "MODULE-COMPLIANCE"

Note that the SNMPv3 effort has NOTHING to do with the SMI. The SNMPv3
effort is ONLY to define a new SNMP message format to allow secure
SNMP message exchange and access control.
