This is not correct. In SMIv2, INDEX objects are not accessible
because the values of these objects are embedded in the instance
identifier. In other words, making INDEX objects not-accessible was a
performance optimization, forcing SNMP managers to extract the INDEX
object values out of the instance identifiers. Making INDEX objects
not accessible does _not_ hide any information.
