Great comments, I agree with them all.  Since I agree with them and I
expect others to do so as well,  I am assuming that we are generally
agreeing with the following assumptions:


1. Browsers are not now and will not be (in the relatively near future)
but the entire desktop operating system of client nodes on the Internet
(maybe some day, just not now for IPP)


2. Some "changes" will have to be made to today's browsers if IPP is
mapped to some transport and endcoding that is not just HTTP and HTML
forms if Browsers want to submit jobs directly using IPP (not just through
an IPP print provider for all apps on the desktop).
