But when one of my colleagues actually went looking for the term being used in 2911 she couldn't find it. And then I went digging...</div><div><br></div><div>So, as far as I can tell, we have *never* used the term "coloring" in an IETF RFC for IPP. I also could not find the term used in ISO DPA. The only place we have used it is in IPP JPS3 (now published) and IPP Everywhere (pending posting for Formal Vote).</div><div><br></div><div>I also did a search of the mailing list archives and found several uses of the term, but I don't see it in any of the drafts (other than JPS3 and Everywhere)</div><div><br></div><div>So, can anyone point me to the origins of the term? Given the number of complaints about this in the past (even for JPS3), the obscure usage, and the apparent lack of precedent, I would prefer to use "filtering" (as requested on several occasions) instead of "coloring" in IPP Everywhere.</div><div><br></div><div>Thoughts?</div><div><br></div><div><div>
