I find the following unclear and would like to see it spelt out in detail
MUST start at 1 and increase monotonically."
Recent discussions on the ietf main list identified two meanings for
'monotonically' - a sequence where each value is greater than or equal to its
predecessor, or a sequence where each value is strictly greater than its
predecessor - and I am unsure whether this means either or neither.
Since this is an INDEX in a MIB, reading it as "nondecreasing" makes no sense,
so I think there is no ambiguity.
