IPP (RFC2911) has a number of media names that include engineering sizes
taken from [ASME-Y14.1M]. For some reason we only included them as media
names (e.g., iso-a1x3-transparent), and not as media size names (e.g.,
iso-a1x3) in IPP. These size names are:
iso-a2x3, iso-a2x4, iso-a2x5
iso-a3x3, iso-a3x4, iso-a3x5, iso-a3x6, iso-a3x7
iso-a4x3, iso-a4x4, iso-a4x5, iso-a4x6, iso-a4x7, iso-a4x8, iso-a4x9
Should we add them?
Someone should look at [ASME-Y14.1M] and get the proper length dimensions
(which aren't in IPP), to go with the width dimensions which are in IPP.

Subject: PWG> Media Names Standard, Version D0.5 Available
The latest version is now available at:
The major change is the merging of the envelope sizes
with the other tables and the separation of the media
type with the size. In addition I have added the
definition of a format for custom media types and color
per a request from Norbert.
There are still two open issues that I am waiting for
clarification from Tom.
1. Tom added a reference [REG] in section 3, but no
corresponding entry in the References section.
2. The ABNF for the size name in section 5.1 may be
incorrect. I am not an ABNF expert, but I believe that
| "-" | "-" ) should be simply | "-" )
I will try to attend the IPP teleconference tomorrow
to discuss any other issues concerning this document.
