[RFC4663], published in September 2006, described a plan for transferring responsibility for four MIB modules related to bridges from the IETF to IEEE 802.1. Some years later, responsibility for eight more MIB modules was transferred from the IETF Ethernet Interfaces and Hub MIB (hubmib) WG to the IEEE 802.3 WG. The MIB modules concerned are tabulated below (Section 2). [RFC4663] clearly enunciates the motivation for both transfers and also provides an introduction to IEEE standardization procedures. The discussions of those topics will not be repeated here.
