    Change Log:

    Version 0.8, 24 March 2003, agreements from the March 20 telecon:
            1. Changed the name of the Send-Document-Data back to Send-Data
    to keep the name short. There wasn't support for keeping the name of the
    object affected in the name of the operation.
            2. Changed "job-mandatory-attributes" operation/Job Description
    attribute so that a Printer MUST support it.
            3. Changed the name of the collection attribute back to
            4. Removed the Operation attributes and Document Description
    attributes that were already in the member attributes of
    "document-format-details", so that any details must use the
    "document-format-details" (1setOf collection).
            5. Clarified that with the removal of "document-overrides",
    that the client can achieve subset finishing using "pages-per-subset" and
            6. Clarified that a Printer that supports "page-overrides"
    Document Template attribute MUST also support it as an Operation attribute
    in Send-Document and Send-URI, but not Create-Document, for backward
            7. Clarified that containers may contain containers, but that
    the "document-format-details" MUST be flattened, if present.
            8. Clarified that the collection values MAY describe the
    container format itself, in which case, it must be the first collection
            9. Added "document-format-details-detected (1setOf collection)
    Document Description attribute.
            10. Clarified that "document-natural-language" identifies the
    primary or first language if a Document contains more than one language.
            11. Added document-format-details-supported (1setOf type2
    keyword) Printer Description attribute.
            12. Added document-format-details-implemented (1setOf
    collection) Printer Description attribute.
            13. Clarified that a Printer MUST support the
    "document-creation-attributes-supported" (1setOf type2 keywords) Printer
    Description attribute.

    One ISSUE remaining:

    Values of the "document-creator-application-version:

    "Winzip* 8.1 (4331)", "Acrobat 5.0.5 10/26/2001", "Microsoft* Word 2000
    (9.0.4119 SR-1)"'V3.0.', 'V6.0'
    ISSUE: OK that the purpose of "document-creator-application-version is
    human consumption, instead of program consumption and that it be the same as
    the application shows in its help message?
