Well if you look at the development of IPP and its current level of 
support, which is very substantial and growing every day, and the general 
theory that fax at a sufficient level of abstraction is "remote printing" 
then a "print-to" URL based on IPP is necessary.

Some of us believe that the concept of "fax" is multi-modal. GSTN T.30 
analog, RFC 2305 S&F,  IPP...take your pick...if you must get a document 
from point A to point B, which is a essential global communications 
service, .. you now have a choice ...and choice is good. That is the goal 
of QUALDOCS. Therefore references to the various transport layer 
opportunities in a "phone book" is useful.

And I might add some of us are ready to put IPP addresses on our business 
cards as soon as we can figure out how to get our DSL providers to install 
a working service, much less route the packets correctly.
