PMP> Top 25 Alert Comments

During the 4/22 phone conference, I promised to post my concerns
with the proposed Appendix D - Overall Printer Status Table. My
initial concern was for the Offline condition having an alert
table entry, which the group agreed was necessary.

While it may seem that I have a lot here, I think many are just in
need of discussion/clarification since Chuck really did a good
first pass. Also, I have a fair amount of duplication. It should
be noted that while some of this is based on HP's implementation,
much if it is empirical (meaning I think our implementation could
use a little tweaking :-).

Instead of repeating the table here, I've listed the columns and
then put "Okay" if I agree with the document as posted, or I've
put a comment. The original document can be found at:
