I don't think Weijing is suggesting that we use unstructured text
instead of XML encoding. Look at the example in his previous mail:
He is saying (and I agree) that the XML data model does not
have to use ifIndex to identify the interface. The agent
probably needs to know (internally) the ifIndex mapping for
Ethernet0/0, but that doesn't mean that the XML data model
must use it.
People have been incorrectly assuming that the XML data model
will need to be tightly coupled to the SMI data model.
