  One objection that was raised to the use of HTTP as a 'transport'
  was that it might require substantial complexity.  In response, I
  among others pointed out that only the 'origin server' requirements
  of HTTP would apply.  If print-by-reference is a MUST, then most of
  the HTTP client requirements would be equally applicable.


  As I said before, I believe that specifying how this works if
  present is a very good idea, but I believe that whether or not to
  put this feature in any given product should be a choice left to the
  vendor.


  This strikes me as an easy feature to describe as a very small set
  of attributes which describe whether or not print-by-reference is
  supported and if so what identity the printer is configured to use
  and any network access restrictions it may have.
