[IPP] Request to add two new media types to MSN 2.0

OK, I apparently forgot to send out the summary email after the F2F for this.


Per the mailing list and subsequent F2F discussions, the following media size names will be added to the IANA registry. "iso_id-1_53.98x85.6mm" and "iso_id-3_88x125mm" are standard ISO/IEC 7810 ID card sizes.  We have omitted ID-2 (old German ID card size) and ID-4 (SIM card size) since they are not used for printing.

"oe_photo-l_3.5x5in" is included in the IANA registration information for MSN2 but was omitted from Table 6.  I am re-registering it here to ensure we have a documented definition for the standard Photo L size used worldwide.  (Photo 2L is already covered by na_index-5x7_5x7in).

"om_dsc-photo_89x119mm" is a standard size in Asia for 4:3 aspect ratio Digital Still Cameras.

Here is the registration information:

Attributes (attribute syntax)
  Keyword Attribute Value                       Reference
  -----------------------                       ---------
media (type3 keyword | name(MAX))               [RFC2911]

This will be submitted to IANA shortly and will appear on the PWG web site in a few minutes...
