The syntax is defined in rfc 822 and rfc 1945. We should just lift it all, word

If xxx-used have a special meaning, I suggest not calling it local-output-device-name-used.

Is 'mail://' defined in some rfc?

I am not sure I agree with the deletion of this feature.

I am trying to avoid arbitrary distinguished values that only IPP gurus know about.
The question is whether a user would expect that number-up = 1 gives normal printing
with essentially no number-up.
