The opennms default event configuration for handling events contain not just OpenNMS internal used events, they also contain IETF MIB specific event definitions. These definitions are spread between default.events.xml, Standard.events.xml and opennms.events.xml. The configuration file which have those events should be separated to be maintainable and easier to upgrade. Special events which catch-all should named clear and not just defaults.events.xml. The IETF events should be moved into separate event files to allow users to remove them easily from eventconf.xml when not needed.
