The standard flexible and elegant alternative to complex data structures
(such as MIBs) is a "message-based protocol" that talks to objects that
can be migrated across the network by copying the object (code & data
together) or accessed across the network by moving the message to the data.
One can model such a thing after the core Smalltalk VM, or the Self VM,
for example. Unlike data structures, objects are inherently
Of course you could just put the data structures into ASCII rather than
ASN.1, and then have the worst of all worlds by using XML to represent
your MIB equivalent.
