SLP MIB work discussion

A SLP MIB definition is needed to advance SLP to draft standard. This document contains notes and work - a scratchpad till we have enough information to issue an internet draft.

The MIB should have important configuration information, but we have to resist the temptation to add too many instruments and features - so as to not burden those SLP implementations which get enhanced with MIB support.

get/set configuration elements?
