We made a decision to eliminate all document attributes because we didn't want
to design the mechanism for returning one attribute per document for version 1.0.


I agree with that decision.  But now I have realized that SendURI has to send
a separate document-URI for each Send-URI operation which means there is a 
separate value of document-URI for each document.  


The following are possible solutions:


    1) bad idea: solve the multiple-document-attribute problem 


    2) OK maybe: document-URI is an operation attribute that does
       not stick to the job object. That is, Get-Attributes does not
       return a document-URI created by a Send-URI operation.
       Get-Attributes could return a document-URI value set by
       Print-URI but it might seem strange that document-URI is
       available for Print-URI jobs but not Create-Job/ Send-URI jobs.


    3) OK maybe: eliminate Send-URI in version 1.0, but keep Print-URI which
       doesn't have this problem.


#3 is probably a little bit better than #2.
