EC Members The following is the response to the comments received from EC members on the 802.20a PAR; no comments were received from any individual working group. Attached is a revised version of the 802.20 MIB amendment PAR. The text has been rewritten to clearly indicate that no new functionality or requirements are being proposed as a part of this project. The amendment is purely an update to the way in which the MIB is being documented and a corrigendum for any errors in the MIB that may be discovered during that process. In light of the fact that this PAR introduces no new functionality a "Five Criteria" document is not required. Also attached is a word document showing a diff-marked version of the scope and purpose clause.

The PAR also states that the purpose is "primarily to define enhanced capabilities and procedures". "include functions" sure sounds like functionality as does enhancing objects and procedures. "enhanced capabilities and procedures" also is functionality. In addition, the "other enhanced features under consideration" leaves the scope pretty wide open. By the way, under consideration now, later? - presumably before the PAR is done anyway - rather odd wording when the scope normally is a statement that goes in the finished standard. I would suggest rewording to something better able to stand the test of time. If the intent is to add security considerations, editorial improvements such as cross references (i.e. REFERENCE entries) then the first sentence of PAR scope and the purpose should be written to more clearly reflect that.

It enhances the MIB by including a section discussing security considerations. The other enhanced features refer to including REFERENCE entries for the objects that will make it easier to find the descriptions.

Since this PAR says it intends to include new functionality, those are required for pre-circulation along with the PAR. Also, could you explain "other enhanced features under consideration"?
