A more likely scenario is "100 simultaneous requests for printer and/or
job status".  If the world persists in assuming that the printer itself
is the place for every individual to seek the status of the printer,
then printer manufacturers will always have to worry about these kinds
of scaling issues.

This scenario is one of the primary motivations for the SENSE project,
along with reliable delivery of event information.
