I wasn't proposing that they be combined. However, I contend that there is
significant overlap and that the split should be handled differently.
Perhaps this will occur as a result of natural consequences. The
communities are heavily overlapped, and in fact, I predict that the
scan-here/print-there paradigm will be the one used in the future for
internet "fax". On the other hand, interworking with the installed based of
fax devices is certainly a topic that is of little concern with the ipp group.

I think if we set up some "design rules" we can insure that the results of
the two groups will at least gracefully interoperate. If all interaction is
handled as MIME objects, then these should also be transportable via SMTP
and "IPP". Would the message disposition notice (MDN) appropriate for
details of the success of the print job submission via IPP? If so, then
this is easily ported to the SMTP world.

I agree with your point about narrow charters.
