[IPP] Proposed System Service operations for Printers w/ Resources

Hi,

In my editor's draft of IPP System Service, I've added two new
operations for associating Resources with Printers (in addition
to the current methods of Create-Printer and HTTP PUT as
described in IPP Shared Infrastructure Extensions):

  Allocate-Printer-Resources (printer-id, resource-ids)

  Deallocate-Printer-Resources (printer-id, resource-ids)

Particularly for systems with multiple Print Service instances,
these would allow more flexible Resource management.

I propose the verb "Allocate" (as in memory allocation) rather
than "Assign" to avoid confusion with "output-device-assigned".

WDYT?

Cheers,
- Ira
