Smith,

Cancel-Jobs is an admin operation, while Cancel-My-Jobs is a user operation (like Cancel-Job).

The reason for requiring it is to provide a way to cancel all pending jobs, even if you don't know the job-id(s).

For less capable printers that have little notion of "users" or of queued / pending jobs, this operation seems really quite unnecessary, or at the least a no-op that would simply "alias" Cancel-Jobs.  Doesn't that dilute the operation's value?
