Yes, of course the C2 byte is static and fixed.
J0 is interesting. What does a "provisioned value" mean? I assumed that it meant that it potentially changes and must therefore be mapped to the management layer. Your exclusion would indicate otherwise. A little more clarification would be welcome.
I left B1 and B3 out because of an assumption that only the SONET framer (WAN PHY) would care about these. B3 makes sense to me since it maps across the entire path. I can't think of an equivalent for B1.

A clarification on your reference to the contents of Norival's document.
The only dynamic OAM bytes in the proposal are B1, B3, G1 and are
calculated/updated on a 125 usec frame basis.
