Within IPP ("media-supported") and the PWG media names (5101.1), the
"custom_min_WIDTHxHEIGHTunits" and "custom_max_WIDTHxHEIGHTunits" names
communicate that the printer supports custom media sizes and what the
range of acceptable values it. I think we just do the same thing in the
Semantic Model.


For media-col's "media-size" member attribute we use a rangeOfInteger
value for the "x-dimension" and "y-dimension" sub=member attributes when
reporting the supported values ("media-size-supported"). I don't know
whether the SM supports this kind of representation for supported
MediaSize values...
