As my previous email stated, I disagree with the notion that the first
value is the default. This may simplify things, but it doesn't solve
the integer range case. This rule may be a good fallback rule for the
case where there is not an explicit default, but I think we need a
mechanism for defining default values. I have suggested that a naming
convention, such as "default-XXX" or "XXX-default" be used as the
default for "XXX". Or perhaps printer attribute XXX contains the default value
for job attribute XXX and the printer attribute "XXX-supported" contains
the supported values.


For attributes exressed as a range, for example, priority, what about
putting the default value first, followed by the range? For example,


priority : 1, (1:100)


That is, the default priority is 1, but allowable
values are in the range 1 to 100.
