I am one of those people.  I am the author of several LPR based print
spooling systems and the reason I got involved was to make sure that
RFC1179 is obsoleted by something rational.


I have some concerns - most of which revolve around PRESENTATION
of the standard and making things uniform and understandable to
the IETF audience.  In addition,  I think that the scope of the IPP
protocol discussions and model is too limited - better to do it
all at once rather than to have SNMP/SNMP II all over again.
