I'm concerned with the use of the 'description' attribute
to hold monitored/managed values. I think it would be
better to define 'monitored'/'managed' attributes, syntax
octet string w/ octet string equality matching, to hold
arbitrary values. The 'monitored' attribute would be
NO-USER-MODIFICATION, the 'managed' would, of course, be
For non-arbitrary values, specific schema should be developed.
Then 'description' could be used for as intended, to provide
a description of the objection.
I suggest we make this change in HEAD soon for release with
2.2. We could provide a flag (just for the 2.2 release) for
backwards compatibility to help with transition.
