What exactly is it that's currently defined as SHOULD?
In general, it sounds like a great idea to make index values
persist across reboots. But I'll make 2 obvious observations:
1. It's not possible for all index values (for example, a process ID).
2. ifIndex is clearly defined as being permitted to change across
reboots. So are you suggesting a new index clause for ifEntry?
