[IPP] media-type names and cotton?

Glen,

"stationery" is just plain sheets of paper. There are qualified versions of stationery as well, e.g., "stationery-letterhead", so this would just be another form of that - think special paper used for cover letters or resumes that otherwise behaves and is used like plain paper.

Technically we could use "fabric" as a top-level media type with qualified versions for different fabrics and finishes, e.g.:

	fabric
	fabric-cotton
	fabric-glossy
	fabric-high-gloss
	fabric-inkjet
	fabric-linen
	fabric-matte
	fabric-semi-gloss
	fabric-tweed
	fabric-waterproof

however I would consider those types to be specific to fabric printing, e.g. curtains, clothing, etc., and not to sheets of specialized paper.
