We've said that IPP Notification would allow printers to use "general-purpose" Event Notification Services available to them on the network. By not supporting straight TCP notification we might be hampering the implementation of this requirement. I don't understand why supporting the suggested three application-level protocols should preclude us from allowing straight TCP subscriptions that can be easily routed through network notification services.

Good. HTTP/1.1 connections are persistent by default. SMTP can deliver
multiple messages per connection. SNMP, of course, doesn't use
