Oh no, it's a big work to code this, so not available in 0.83+1.0. I haven't date for this, except if somebody want to pay for this :)

I'm not really ok for this because get data depend of snmp implementation in the system... and so very different... so will have many problems with this

The snmp is used to create model.
But how do you know oid we use?
For confidential problem, with community snmp model creation tool it will be resolved because snmpwalk will be uploaded only on you glpi ;)

>4) Why net inventory is not implemented stepwise: first get standard

Because oids names not same between 2 mibs, mibs not always ok with firmware... so not good solution
