MOP is fairly thoroughly documented in the DDCMP specification
manual, part of publicly available Digital Network Architecture
documentation.

Use of MOP by DECnet software, however, deals more with VMS
design than the protocols. Using the DDCMP manual, however,
I was, in a previous job, able to design a dump/reload handler
using MOP (which, for other reasons, we did not use).
