I have assumed that IPP printer-name == LPD printer name, but
that IPP printer-name differs from IPP printer-URI. That is
IPP printer-name might be "killtree" and IPP printer-URI might be

The translation between printer-name (LPD or IPP) and printer-URI is
easy because of the two IPP attributes and because a name service is
likely to have both.
On the other hand, jobs won't be in the name service because they are
transient, and the syntax of a job-URI is opaque so there is no way
to determine a Job-Id from a Job-URI.
