That's true. Before uploading, I just want to add some installation 
dialog asking the user if the MIBS should be downloaded now or if the 
user wants to do this later or by hand.

The same could be done for SMI, as well. Or both could even be combined 
(making libsnmp-base only ship the NET-SNMP and former UCD MIBS 
integrated into the libsmi MIB tree). This would at least avoid the need 
to store these non-free MIBs twice in case both packages are being used.
