I have incorporate most of your comments, as well as those from
Roger and Tom. I will put a new version 1.31 out on the Web tonight.
But here are comments for ones I didn't put in the new version.

I see job-held as a job-state-reasons and not a job-state value.
It is not currently in the document because there is no way to
change its value. We have not specified whether there is a job-held
attribute or a hold/release operation.
We have not addressed whether such events are covered under an
existing event, such as job-problems, or some new event.
>> 10. Section 22.214.171.124. job-retention-period. Page 24. Line
>> Add to the NOTE: "The requester may also specify this

No, the job-retention-period is an attribute that accompanies a job
in the Job and Document Attributes parameter.
>>> 12. Section 126.96.36.199. medium. Page 30. Line 896.

I think that "automatic" is the same as "as-is", in that it says
to use whatever is in the document data which may be nothing. So the
issue is whether to call the value "automatic" or "as is"

Please say more. I have assume that a graphics API (e.g. GDI) includes
the content orientation and for that matter the page layout, so it
doesn't make sense to specify content-orientation, which in my view
specifies the first level of page layout.

We haven't yet specified how one end of a range is open.
But if the syntax is 'a:b', then either 'a:' or 'a:*' could mean
that the range has no upper bound.
>> 26. Section 5.5.1. printer-name. Page 43. Line 1215.

The printer-name attribute was renamed 'name' and moved to the common
attributes section which also contains URL.
