The abstract is:
This document specifies an extension to the Internet Printing
Protocol/1.0 (IPP) [RFC2565, RFC2566] and IPP/1.1 [RFC2910, RFC2911]. This
extension consists primarily of Job Template attributes defined for
submitting print jobs primarily (but not limited to) to production printers.
These attributes permit a user to control and/or override instructions in
the document content to perform the following functions: print on document
covers, control the positioning of stapling, force pages to the front side
of the media, identify an imposition template, insert sheets into the
document, provide an accounting id, provide an accounting user id, request
accounting sheets, provide job sheet messages, request error sheets, provide
a message to the operator, control the media used for job sheets, request
media by characteristic (size, weight, etc.), request to check the media
characteristics in an input tray, specify the presentation direction of page
images with number-up, and shift the images of finished pages.
This extension also defines the "current-page-order" Job Description
attribute, the "user-defined-values-supported" and
"max-stitching-locations-supported" Printer Description attributes, and the
'resources-are-not-supported' value for the "job-state-reasons" Job
Description attribute. Some additional "media" keyword values are defined
for use with the "media" and "media-col" Job Template attribute.
