I don't see why one can't use the AppleTalk "Chooser" name as the
value for this object.  Seems pretty rationale and natural to me.


Let me ask this:  given a heterogenous network (PCs, Macs, Unix, etc),
would an administrator refer to the printer by the Mac Chooser name
within all environments?  That is, if the Chooser name is "LaserZapper",
then would an administrator tend to refer to the printer as "LaserZapper"
in the non-Mac environments?
