Here is how I see it....

job-state = 'pending' with a job-state-reason = 'printer-stopped'

printer-state = 'stopped',  add a new reason to describe this - something
like
printer-state-reasons = 'stopped-by-operator'.

The Printer has a boolean attribute called "printer-is-accepting-jobs".  If
the value is 'true' the Printer (and its queue have been enabled) otherwise
the value is 'false'.

We added the state 'cancelled' and the reason would be
'cancelled-by-operator'.


job-state = 'cancelled', job-state-reasons = 'cancelled-by-operator'
