I think that we are finally getting to the heart of this issue, namely
that the protocol currently puts the URI of the operation's target object
in the Request-Line of the HTTP operation, and it is not in the
application/ipp message body.


I think that I am hearing both Randy and Paul say that they think that
the target job or printer URI should be a parameter in the application/ipp
message body.  Am I right in my understanding?
