Media/MediaCol capabilities issue:

In internal prototyping efforts we came across a problem.  In higher end
printer environments, and even some office environments, the size of the
media database can become quite large.  Clearly printers must be able to
serve up the allowed media in a capabilities request.  We have found
however that it is quite problematic to have to serve up that same
database each and every place that media capabilities occur (e.g.
CoverBack, CoverFront, InsertSheet, JobAccountingSheets, ProofPrint).
For the most part these capability elements need only indicate if Media
and/or MediaCol are allowed in the associated processing element.  The
DocumentProcessing elements Media and MediaCol allow the entire database
of media to be retrieved.  Furthermore it is preferable that the media
database should be explicitly requested to insure that the client is not
inundated with the contents of the media database unless that is what
the client desires.
