I may be stupid, but I have some difficulty to see why you have to have
a keyword to do these scenarios, it seems to me they can equally well be 
done with a text string...

BTW, I think your scenarios look like they will need some private
localization that cannot be part of a standard anyway.

Example 1: a printing company has a web-based printing service that
allows registered customers to submit files for printing.  The
operator(s) of the printing equipment need to know when a job
comes in that required their attention (and the job is held until
the operator readies the printer and releases it), however the
customer does not know (and should not know) who will be doing the

[This is a real-world example of something that is happening right

Example 2: A coworker prints a document you forgot to a printer at
the hotel you are staying at.  You don't know who will be receiving
the job, and the hotel requires a valid username or one of the
keywords, so you have to say "operator" and include a cover page with
the job.

Example 3: Same as example 2, but inside a company a la fax pickup.

Mind you, we can still do this without a keyword (just define special
names on the server for this sort of thing), but it would be nice to
have support for it in IPP (and not make everything we do in the
real world an extension...)
