Everything starting with . is reserved for the IETF to assign.
So starting with that annoys them.

Enterprises (orgs) start with:

Other orgs have their own space.  Fr example, Cicso
start with: .

gpsd now has its own, reserved prefix: .

Everyone is happy, until they see what I do.  :-)

Got that backwards.  The "counter" comes forst, then the "unit".

Nothing limits to under 31.  We could have thousands.

For example, u-blox 9 has over 1,000 config items.  I can easlily image
gpsd using at least 100.

You want it to work.  I want it to not interfere or annoy IETF.  At

asks for our MIB, which we also need to do.
