I think that job-uri examples would be just as useless as the current
printer-uri examples; most embedded (read: printer and print server)
implementations use something like:

     ipp://hostname/ipp
     ipp://hostname/ipp/portname

However, these are not listed as examples.

Similarly, do we show:

     ipp://hostname/jobs/123
     ipp://hostname/ipp/job-123

as valid job-uri values, when only the IPP server can provide the
correct values, and even then some current implementations (read:
HP) don't really support Get-Jobs or Get-Job-Attributes.
