It's stuck in my head that NTP has Assigned Numbers (MIBs? I'm
not up to speed on SNMP) already, and SNMP capability could be
added without too much trouble.

I'm tying to see the catch - would this be for monitoring purposes
only? There are many people who want to reconfigure on the fly; on
the other hand there are probably even more people who only want
to watch. And it might make sense for some high-end appliance
manufacturer to develop, even.
