You could make this a directory attribute, but I don't think its
absolutely necessary to support it in IPP. Besides, its in the printer
MIB ;)

attribute?

		I recently noticed there is no pages-per-minute
attribute in IPP. I noticed
		this first when reviewing the draft printer scheme for
SLP
		(draft-ietf-srvloc-printer-scheme-02.txt). The printer
scheme seems to
		inherit it's attribute definitions from IPP. I think ppm
is one of the most
		fundamental attributes in terms of printer selection.
I'm sure this must
		have been discussed at some point during IPP
development, probably at a time
		when I wasn't paying much attention to the mail list. I
do remember a
		discussion about a cost attribute that was eliminated
because it was deemed
		too qualitative. But ppm is quantitative and universal
in advertising
		printers. So, can someone explain why it is not an IPP
printer attribute?
		And, for those familiar with the SLP printer scheme
effort, why is it not
		part of the SLP printer scheme?

		Thanks,
		Angelo
