Technical Summary
 
  This MIB module defines textual conventions to represent commonly
  used Internet network layer addressing information. The intent is
  that these textual conventions will be imported and used in MIB
  modules that would otherwise define their own representations. 

  This document Obsoletes RFC 3291.

  This is the 3rd version, which introduces the InetZoneIndex,
  InetScopeType and InetVersion textual conventions.

Working Group Summary
 
  This document is not a WG document. But it did get reviewed on the
  mibs (currently ietfmibs) mailing list. In addition a 4 week IETF 
  Last Call has been issued. The MIB Doctors have also reviewed this.
