1. Please rank the following proposals according to your interest
level using the following scale ( 10 = High level of interest vs. 0 =
No interest).

( ) 1284.4 Over Data FIFO Architecture (DFA)
( ) 1284.4 Over SBP-2
( 7 ) Direct Printing Protocol - (current PWG-C proposal 0.71)
( 10 ) SBP-2 Native - (current PWG proposal 0.1c)
( ) Other --- SBP-2 NON-mirroring
( ) Other --- SBP-2 mirroring

2. Please provide background comments on your ranking.

Why do you prefer to use the given solution?

DPP can be a very good solution for consumer products, but may not
necessarily be suitable for office applications. I think the DPP command
set is very interesting. It can be a basis for setting up a common API
set for different transport protocols.
Since PWG-C is working hard on DPP for consumer products, PWG should
focus on high performance solutions (it may cost more than DPP
solution). I think SBP-2 is the best cadidate so far for this category.

Why should others consider the given solution?
See above.

What issues are you aware of (if any) with the given solution?
How to solve the "peer-to-peer" connection problem.

3) Opinions on multiple printing protocols;
( ) There should be ONLY 1 printing protocol in any case
and any application.
( 8 ) 2 protocols are ACCEPTABLE if necessary for different
situations
( ) I PREFER more than 2 protocols
( ) Other --- Even more than 2 protocols are ACCEPTABLE
if necessary for different situations
