I tried to take a stab at which attributes are Mandatory and which are
not.  I started this just as the "conformance" discussion started and so
where I have:


	If Request and Printer:				
	If not Request and Printer:			
	If Request and not Printer:			
	If not Request and not Printer:		
	best-effort = substitute-as-needed:		
	best-effort = do-not-substitute:


lines which are not filled in, I think they can all be subsumed by the
generic statements about what happens as described in the
conformance section.   Maybe, this should just be a discription of what is
Mandatory and what is not.  Just thought I would kick start the
discussion.  Also, the whole notion of defaults are not brought into this.  I
like Bob's proposal to go back to Printer "default" attributes for all of the
Job/Printer Job Template attributes.
