[IPP] PWG: Canon proposal to extend the IPP Preset draft specification

Hi Mike,

It seems to me that Canon's proposal is simply to require that the Client pass back to the Printer the "preset-name" if one is chosen. But if I understand your feedback, if the Client provides the "preset-name" in the Job Creation operation, then we have to be clear about which attribute value takes precedence when one value is also included in the Job Creation operation and is also present in the Preset.  This might arise if a user selects a preset and then makes further selections that effectively overwrite the value(s) listed in the preset.

I like your alternative, because it keeps things simpler. But from a purely PWG / certification / compliance point of view, I'm not sure how we would go about certifying that the Client will behave properly.

As you said, let's please discuss at this week's call.

It would require us to define the order of precedence, how to handle attribute fidelity, when to copy preset attributes, and amend the job creation operations to support all of it.  It would probably also warrant making this registration a full specification since we'd be extending the job creation operations.

It allows printers to apply preset job attributes that a client does not directly support. I personally find this proposal interesting and useful since one of the biggest issues with driverless printing (aka universal driver) is that typical IPP clients only support a small subset of the possible IPP printer capabilities.
