Steve, I think the necessary values are already present.  

- The enum list for PrintSupply.Type already includes Staples.
- For Type=Staples, the normally appropriate SupplyUnit is Items, though
a manufacturer might always choose to use Percent.  

Is there still something else that needs to be added to these lists?

Richard,

Can you add the appropriate finisher values for PrintSupply (e.g.
staples)?
