When it comes to resources that can be shared and are “owned” by another entity (i.e. Resource Service) I prefer “Acquire” and “Release”.

‘Allocate’ sounds good to me, especially since the resource may be shared.

Subject: [IPP] Proposed System Service operations for Printers w/ Resources
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".
