Section MIB says:

> Dear IETF Person-in-Charge,
>
>      We found that Q-BRIDGE-MIB (RFC 2674) had its content corrected
> using the RFC 4363.
>
>      While this kind of update and grammatical correction is a good
> thing,
> we found that:
>
> << old ("which" as correlative pronoun)
>        "The number of valid frames received by this port from
>        its segment which were classified as belonging to this
>        VLAN which were discarded due to VLAN related reasons.
>        Specifically, the IEEE 802.1Q counters for Discard
>        Inbound and Discard on Ingress Filtering."

> << new ("that" as correlative pronoun)
>        "The number of valid frames received by this port from
>        its segment that were classified as belonging to this
>        VLAN and that were discarded due to VLAN-related reasons.
