I am merely answering the question regarding how do printer
implementations handle the 8 bits of an OCTET STRING (I am not
expressing an opinion yet as co-chair). Lexmark implementations
keep all 8 bits, we do not limit OCTET STRINGs to just 7 bits.
In other words, for read/write strings we accept 8 bits and
return 8 bits, some read only strings will return 8 bits depending
on the language selected for the operator panel.
