Hi Angelo,

Thanks to James for answering (2), that most existing directory
services don't have ordered multi-valued attributes, so of course
SLP is consistent and doesn't have them.  Also, to add such a
basic string syntax extension now to SLPv2 would be to leave
the SLPv1 environment still with the same problem (which wouldn't
please either the IETF IPP WG or the Open Group's NCMG Print WG).

To (1), why didn't I add 'pages-per-minute-color', my answer:
a) I was tired and wan't to get this thing out for review, like
   I promised to do about three weeks ago;
b) The 'pages-per-minute' black-and-white speed attribute
   is still just a proposal (and I don't think a formal one
   yet?) for IPP/1.0 itself;
c) I was unclear whether a lot of mostly silence on the IPP
   list with respect to 'pages-per-minute-color' and the SLP
   'printer:' template in general could be construed as
   assent to the two speed attributes (in Tom Hastings
   comments on the template from around the first week of
   December).

ISSUE:  Do IPP folks want two speed attributes (one for
nominal black-and-white speed and one for any form of 
color speed, highlight, two-color, four-color, whatever)?

Please state your opinions.

Cheers,
