I'm confused.  The FAX number below is not a "preferred" FAX #, it's the
_only_ FAX number for the provider.  I'm not sure what the purpose of
putting a printer URL in the provider element would be (except maybe to
irritate ISPs by running jobs on the office printer ;-): the printer would
almost certainly be somewhere far from the roaming user.
