Why do these need to be rolled into the 1.1 spec? It is perfectly possible
for them to remain outside the spec - as with any other extensions to
operations or attributes. Note that this is an editorial question - not
related in any way to what set1 does or where it came from.  By continously
rolling new operations into the main spec we churn the main spec and also
create an implication that extensions NOT rolled into the main specs are in
fact second class citizens.

The source of the new optional operations is the following:

Paul Moore wrote a contribution in mid-1998 to the PWG and suggested that we
add a few new optional operations. 

The PWG has processed this and have produced several intermediate drafts
called the "IPP Optional Operations - Set 1", with the intention of
introducing them as registered extensions once the IPP/1.0 was published. If
you have participated in any of the IPP meetings lately, or have looked up
the drafts referenced from the IPP web site, these operations should be no
news to you. However, as this will be the first time that they are actually
included in an Internet-draft document, it might be new to some of you. The
new operations go somewhat beyond the original charter for the IPP WG, but
are, like most of the other operations, inspired by similar functionality in
the ISO DPA standard.

As a number of implementations have already included the new operations, and
that they will be part of the IPP testing in March, the latest IPP meeting
recommended, as previously announced to this DL, that they should go in as
part of the IPP/1.1 series of documents.
