Ya know, I just happened to be on the IETF RFC web page today to see
what would turn up when the word "print" or "printer" was used as the
sole search criteria.

Very interesting results.  Neither search resulted in the display
of RFC 1759 (the Printer MIB).  Moreover, of the many RFCs that were
displayed, RFC 1179 (LPD) was *way* down at the end of the list.

Not sure why you think we should grab an Internet domain name for this
effort.  Any ideas you'd like to share?

Actually I tend to agree.  Seems like "IPP" is way too TLA-ish for the
scope of this effort.  Perhaps something like:

	"Hypertext Internet Printing Protocol Operations" (HIPPO)

Hmm...  Perhaps that stirs up visions of big, fat, heavy kinds of things,
though...  ;-)
