A Manager is a CLIENT, not a SERVER.  It does not accept requests, it sends them.

I see nothing about the interface between the Output Device and Print Service and  it was my understanding that we have carefully  avoided this since this may very well be a  proprietary  and perhaps an internal interface. You have stated that  “Service <-> Output Device interface has never been defined” ;  do I understand your statement to mean that the IPP SIX effort is to define it?

It defines one possible interface whose purpose is to specifically allow a IPP Printer to relay print jobs to an Output Device using IPP operations initiated from the Output Device/IPP Manager.
