The above comment brings up a concept which cannot be connected to job
templates.  A job template specifies default values, but cannot
restrict values. A printer specifies allowed values, and can therefore
restrict values.


In the case above where a printer wants to present two levels of
priority to different users, a mechanism other than job template is
required. Whatever it is, it is beyond our current scope.
