Oops, will fix.

These have particular application to commercial print services and service discovery.

These provide control over the final imposition/scaling of the document data on the output media - important particularly for commercial print services.

This is used for service discovery; we need to have a way to configure the service name.

This is used for service selection/filtering - again, if you are looking for a print service that supports the kind of document you are printing, you need this information.
(this is also part of the DNS-SD TXT record, but DNS-SD is not the only way to do discovery)

These are used to inform the Client of limits for direct photo and PDF printing - having dealt with a lot of commercial print shops over the years, it is VERY important for the Client to be able to know whether they support a particular flavor of PDF or have limits in the maximum size/dimensions of print files.
