The 'job-collation-type' attribute is already there, in row 21 of the same table
(Table 5 in section 7.3).  So, for 'job-progress' notifications, you would have
this information.  However, another proposal that I made at the Denver meeting
was to make rows 21-25 in that table (including 'job-collation-type')
conditionally required for 'job-completed' notifications as well as for
'job-progress' notifications.  That proposal did not enjoy enough support to
carry, but maybe now it might be a different story.  At the very least, you make
a good point: if we add job-impressions to job-completed notifications,
job-collation-type probably needs to be made conditionally-required on such
notifications.  I'll let you write this 'issue' up however you want.

In general, my belief is that anything that is important enough to put on a
job-progress notification is also important enough to put on a job-completed
notification.  Always remember that:
1) there are recipients who will register only for the job-completed
notifications, and
2) not all jobs complete successfully, and for such jobs, the job-complete
notification is almost more of a job-progress notification: "here is how far we
got before aborting/canceling".
