[MFD] ISSUE: MustHonor/job-mandatory-attributes at different levels of a JobTicket/job template

All,

 

While updating the PWG Semantic Model and adding some missing MustHonor
attributes I came across a bit of an issue.  I was adding MustHonor to
the elements directly under DocumentProcessing.  When I got to elements
like CoverBack and MediaCol I noticed that some of the contained
elements are also directly under DocumentProcessing (e.g. Media,
MediaType).    It seems rather inconsistent to  control fidelity for a
subset of a collection's members.

 

The issues comes down to which elements can be decorated with  MustHonor
and what limitations on attribute names  are made for the
job-mandatory-elements.  

 

 

My opinion is that it MustHonor should be placed on every processing
element and any job template attribute can be used in
job-mandatory-element.  I would expect that fidelity would work similar
to documents inheriting job level attributes in multi-document jobs.
The "MustHonor" attribute at a node in the tree (e.g., MediaCol) applies
to all subordinate nodes (e.g., MediaTooth) unless explicitly
overridden.  The same semantics would apply for job-mandatory-elements.

 

Comments?
