[IPP] IPP Deprecation Request for RFC 3381 Attributes

This is a formal request to deprecate all of the attributes defined in RFC 3381: Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): Job Progress Attributes.  This request is made in conformance with the IPP Registry Policy at:


RFC 3381 defines the "sheet-collate" Job Template attribute, which does not interact well with the "finishings" and "multiple-document-handling" attributes, and several progress monitoring attributes that depend on the value of this attribute.

The following is the registry template to deprecate the attributes.  We will work separately with the IETF to change the status of RFC 3381.
