Change Log:

Version 0.8, 24 March 2003, agreements from the March 20 telecon:
	1.	Changed the name of the Send-Document-Data back to Send-Data
to keep the name short.  There wasn't support for keeping the name of the
object affected in the name of the operation.
	2.	Changed "job-mandatory-attributes" operation/Job Description
attribute so that a Printer MUST support it.
	3.	Changed the name of the collection attribute back to
"document-format-details".
	4.	Removed the Operation attributes and Document Description
attributes that were already in the member attributes of
"document-format-details", so that any details must use the
"document-format-details" (1setOf collection).
	5.	Clarified that with the removal of "document-overrides",
that the client can achieve subset finishing using "pages-per-subset" and
"page-overrides".
	6.	Clarified that a Printer that supports "page-overrides"
Document Template attribute MUST also support it as an Operation attribute
in Send-Document and Send-URI, but not Create-Document, for backward
compatibility.
	7.	Clarified that containers may contain containers, but that
the "document-format-details" MUST be flattened, if present.
	8.	Clarified that the collection values MAY describe the
container format itself, in which case, it must be the first collection
value.
	9.	Added "document-format-details-detected (1setOf collection)
Document Description attribute.
	10.	Clarified that "document-natural-language" identifies the
primary or first language if a Document contains more than one language.
	11.	Added document-format-details-supported (1setOf type2
keyword) Printer Description attribute.
	12.	Added document-format-details-implemented (1setOf
collection) Printer Description attribute.
	13.	Clarified that a Printer MUST support the
"document-creation-attributes-supported" (1setOf type2 keywords) Printer
Description attribute.

One ISSUE remaining:

Values of the "document-creator-application-version:

"Winzip* 8.1 (4331)", "Acrobat 5.0.5 10/26/2001", "Microsoft* Word 2000
(9.0.4119 SR-1)"'V3.0.', 'V6.0'
ISSUE:  OK that the purpose of "document-creator-application-version is
human consumption, instead of program consumption and that it be the same as
the application shows in its help message?
