Rick found that I misread the CIM Arch CRs 72 and 89.
The old Units qualifier is being replaced with PUnit
(singular) in CIM v2.16.

I'll fix this typo in our CIM_PrintInputTray and
CIM_PrintMarker classes after WIMS-CIM this Thursday
and whatever feedback we get on CIM_PrintOutputTray
from this Friday's CIM Core WG meeting.

The PUnit change will affect hundreds of MOF classes
and be performed by machine-edits of CIM MOFs - at a
rather dubious gain of functionality, since the new
PUnit qualifier won't be recognized by ANY of the
currently deployed CIM tools - and the deprecated 
Units qualifier will have to be retained for years 
into the future.
