Dear all, 

We have two questions regarding the stable draft of IPP FaxOut.

1. Send-Hardcopy-Document:
Since we cannot imagine the usage, we do not understand why this operation MUST be supported.
So could you tell us the use case of the Send-Hardcopy-Document operation?
If this operation is NOT critical for IPP FaxOut, we suggest to change it to be "optional" for implementing easily.


2. destination-statuses:
We want to clarify which transmission status value should be specified in the "destination-statuses" when a multiple destination job is canceled.
Details are described below, but we think it is slightly unclear.

"4.1.3 Job Terminating State
"The terminating state of an IPP FaxOut Job reflects the absolute final disposition of the Job. Jobs in the ‘canceled’ state were canceled by a User using the Cancel-Job, Cancel-Jobs, or Cancel-My-Jobs operations, regardless of whether any or all of the Job has been processed or partially transferred to its destination URI(s). The “destination-statuses” Job Description attribute (section 7.3.1) provides detailed information regarding the progress of the job prior to cancellation."

For example, the job has 5 destinations.
The job is canceled when the device is transfering fax document to 3rd destination.
 1. completed
 2. completed
 3. transfering <- The job is canceled in the middle of here  4. wait  5. wait

Are the "job-state" and the "destination-statuses" the following?
job-state: canceled
destination-statuses:
 1. completed
 2. completed
 3. processing
 4. pending
 5. pending

 OR

job-state: canceled
destination-statuses:
 1. completed
 2. completed
 3. canceled
 4. canceled
 5. canceled

Which is correct?

Regards,
Munehisa MATSUDA
