Hi Ramon,

Thanks for providing this.  I think it is really useful and it is a bit of a surprise that it would be removed.  I guess the SOIS guys were often moving toward less specificity rather than more, which seems strange to me.  I would think that in some future SOIS Services Magenta book that I diagram like this would find a home, along with a description of how the EDS could be used to document the MIB contents and structure.

I think it's important to keep in mind that a Magenta Book is defined to be a recommended practice, that is not necessarily directly implementable.  I think the most important features that SOIS has brought forward are mostly conceptual and therefore entirely suitable for an MB.  They can inform actual designs but are not intended to prescribe them.  A Blue Book, OTOH, is intended to prescribe, in detail, the features of the interfaces, behaviors, and PDUs (as appropriate), but not to prescribe how these are implemented.

Thanks, Peter

An action item for me was to recollect which SOIS book made explicit use of the MIB for managing devices.  The published version of Device Enumeration Service 871.0-M-1 contains a reference to the MIB in Figure 2-4, and explains the Device and Value Identifier Resolution Table in section 4.  Draft versions of the book had more detailed diagrams, which were removed before publication in order to provide a more general description; an excerpt from the unpublished draft version appears below.
