I disagree, a secure printer could reveal some but not all information about
a job.  We have left the degree of information purposely vague so that
a Printer can return as little or as much information as it wants based
on who is asking.

with Get-Jobs, though it could return a special job-uri that was different
from what the job owner might get.
