[IPP] Questions for the stable draft of IPP FaxOut

I seem to recall that we decided to make Send-Hardcopy-Document optional or
conditionally mandatory (if there is a scan capability) and were going to
ask for an errata on the SM FaxOut spec.

If you have a scan head on your MFP then users will want to be able to fax
documents from that scan head.  There are already a lot of mobile
applications being provided that serve as alternatives to the printer's own
control panel, so this operation would allow those applications to support
faxout as well.

And FWIW, the current wording is based on the intended conformance of the
Semantic Model FaxOut spec, which makes the operation required.

I'm happy to clarify the text here.

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."

The latter.
