To help clarify the value for the "document-format" attribute in IPP for use
with Internet FAX, I suggest that we add the value:

    'image/tiff'  - Tag Image Format - see IANA MIME Media Type registry

Also Portable Document Format is becoming prevalent enough.  I suggest also
adding the following value to the list in the Model document:

    'application/pdf'  -  Portable Document Format - see IANA MIME Media
Type registry

ok?



'mimeMediaType'
The 'mimeMediaType' attribute syntax is the Internet Media Type (sometimes
called MIME type) as defined by RFC 2046 [RFC2046] and registered according
to the procedures of RFC 2048 [RFC2048] for identifying a document format.
The value MAY include a charset parameter, depending on the specification of
the Media Type in the IANA Registry [IANA-MT].  Although most other IPP
syntax types allow for only lower-cased values, this syntax type allows for
mixed-case values which are case-insensitive.
Examples are:  
	'text/html': An HTML document
	'text/plain': A plain text document in US-ASCII (RFC 2046 indicates
that in the absence of the charset parameter MUST mean US-ASCII rather than
simply unspecified) [RFC2046].
	'text/plain; charset=US-ASCII':  A plain text document in US-ASCII
[52, 56].
	'text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1':  A plain text document in ISO
8859-1 (Latin 1) [ISO8859-1].
	'text/plain; charset=utf-8':  A plain text document in ISO 10646
represented as UTF-8 [RFC2044]
	'text/plain, charset=iso-10646-ucs-2':  A plain text document in ISO
10646 represented in two octets (UCS-2) [ISO10646-1]
	'application/postscript':  A PostScript document [RFC2046]
	'application/vnd.hp-PCL':  A PCL document [IANA-MT] (charset escape
sequence embedded in the document data)
	'application/octet-stream':  Auto-sense - see below
