Opps, sorry, I guess a little context would help here...

You might view it as "an implementation choice"...but what about the
poor user?

Specifically, if the system administrator changes the job defaults
between the time the job is submitted and the time the job starts being
processed for printing (ie, when you would do dynamic binding), then
the job may very well not be processed the way the user expected.

Recall that the user can list the target printer's default attributes
prior to submission, and then submit the job, believing that the
defaults are acceptable.

How would you guard against (ie, protect the user from) this situation?
