Well, I guess I'll be quiet now except to say it would be a good time to describe the attributes and constraints on all three types of Documents. :)

I guess we are in violent agreement.  One comment below.

This is the difference between a Hardcopy Document and a Hardcopy Document /Object/. We need to define the latter and not the former.
<PZ>I see no subclasses of Documents in the PWG Semantic Model or IPP.  Whether a document is added to a Job by value, by reference, or by reference to the output of the scanner subunit, it is still just a Document object.

I am not suggesting a subclass of document.

We already categorize documents as "referenced" and "with attached document data". For hardcopy documents we would have a Document Object containing description attributes/elements that identify the source and properties of the hardcopy document.

I chose to call it a "Hardcopy Document Object" as opposed to a "Document Object with Associated Hardcopy Document Input Elements".  How the digital representation is stored and when exactly the document is scanned are, IMHO, implementation specific.
