announcing that web-based management was a topic being discussed at the
NM's open area meeting:

> Tuesday, June 25 1530-1730
> Thursday, June 27 0900-1130
> Agenda Topics
> --------------
> o NM Area Highlights
> o New Working Group
> o Application Management
> o "Web-based" Management
> o SNMP Security/Admin Framework
> o General SNMP Issues

it would seem that your topic is already being discussed in that venue.


ps: the terms "informal BOF" and "official BOF" seem to be co-equally
