If you're implementing things as individual instances, then you're
probably best off not treating this as a table at all (at least as far as
registration is concerned).

The simplest approach might be to use 'netsnmp_register_instance' - either
for each instance individually or possibly in conjunction with the 'range_subid'
and 'range_ubound' fields of the registration structure. See the AgentX
specs for an explanation of this latter approach.
(I know you said you're not actually using AgentX, but the same model
has been adopted for the Net-SNMP agent more generally).
