I've uploaded the Bi-di Plug-in API draft document at:

You can download the latest document from the above location,
and it's a first draft version fully translated in English.

I think, we need more clarifications in the near future version's
docutment for:

- The standard "idRequest" value for the bidiCtrl() function.
  (Currently, no standard idRequest is defined.)
- Sample bi-di implementation under CUPS.
- Mapping some of the printer status data to IPP attributes.
- PPD keywords related to Bi-di Plug-in modules.
- Guidelines for saving the printer status data as a local file.

Comments are welcome.
