This version of the document incorporates many of the suggestions I received from Michael Sweet and Ira McDonald.

The following summarizes the significant changes made in this version of the doc:

1.  Limited each value of the "client-print-support-files-supported" attribute to contain a single uri.  This removes the requirement for "long" strings to hold these values.  If there are multiple uri's where to download a given set of client print support files, each is listed in a separate value.

2.  Removed the need for the "long-text" syntax.  Since the contents of each value string are either a uri or a human-readable representation of a keyword, internationalization issues never apply to these strings, so its syntax was changed to octetString(MAX).  

3.  The legal values for "os-type" are the operating system names registered with IANA.

4.  Added "uri-scheme" to the definition of "client-print-support-files-request" to allow clients to narrow-down queries based on the uri-scheme of the uri from where the files can be downloaded.
 

ISSUES:

a)  What operation ID can we assign the get-client-print-support-files operation?
b)  Can Digest Authentication provide enough client-side authentication to justify mandating it instead of TLS?
