Hi Pete,

Originally, we had some boolean to say "and by the way print"
for FaxIn (and EmailIn, presumably) - no longer in the schema.

Then we decided instead to tread print as just another destination.  

And treating it that way let's the hardcopy for the FaxIn document
happen easily off-box (e.g., on a printer nearer the user).

I strongly favor no extra privilege/details for the print destination of
FaxIn - just a URI that points to some PrintService that prints with 
the configured defaults.

Otherwise FaxIn-to-Print becomes more of a true compound
service - very undesirable.
