Peter recently posted a PWG Job Ticket proposal derived from IPP 
attributes. While I wholeheartedly support establishing and leveraging the 
PWG Semantic Model (and deriving it largely from IPP)... I want to bring 
to the attention of PWG members that there is already a robust XML Job 
Ticket defined by the CIP4 JDF working group. http://www.cip4.org/

JDF has it's roots in Graphic Arts and Workflow and , in it's full 
definition, the JDF JT is not as simple as what Peter is proposing. The 
JDF JT incorporates aspects of the Adobe Portable Job Ticket Format and 
addresses things like order of operations, has longevity and facilitates 
job tracking and accounting. Nonetheless, the JDF Job Ticket can be 
reduced and simplified. 

Because the JDF job ticket is already gaining acceptance in some industry 
segments and overlaps with our goals to a degree, I suggest we consider 
either basing our Job Ticket definition on JDF (see link to simple 
example, below) or, at least, assure a simple mechanical XSLT mapping 
between the two.
