Action nodes I believe pass the script arguments similarly. 

Test em to see which exist and/or are blank, and off ya go. 

Or... have your script do 
        env | grep NVATTR | wc -l    

and you may have then know how many got passed.  You'll have to play
around with it. 

It's a royal pain when vendors change stuff like this and we're stuck
managing devices of various levels that send different things in their
traps.  I think I support about 5 different incarnations of Nokia's
VrrpTrapNewMaster, at least 2 of them with the same OID
