IPP> Revised I-D for SLP 'printer:' template

Hi Ron,

I spoke unclearly.  Some subsequent version MAY
fold in Mikael Pahmp's work.  One of the key 
problems with his work is that a reasonable 
URL scheme name needs to be chosen and registered
with IANA.  The current 'raw-tcp:' does NOT clarify
that it's doing print service.  I've suggested that
'printraw:' would be a better name.

There is also some potential advantage to separate
I-Ds/RFCs for non-IETF standards track protocols
(like HP port 9100 and Novell NDPS).  This tends
to map better to the LDAP auxiliary object classes
for each print protocol.

Cheers,
- Ira

Ira,

I thought you said that this version would also fold in the raw
TCP service type from the draft by Mikael Pahmp.
(draft-ietf-svrloc-rawtcp-printer-scheme-01.txt)
Did I hear wrong?
