Let's add the keywords Mike suggested to the list.  Thanks for the input.

Michael, can you be more specific.  It's not clear to me what is it that you're finding confusing.

This field was added by the group in the Chicago meeting.  We looked at several scenarios where a user or program would need this additional information to select the "right" print support file.  The value of this field may be populated by a printer manufacturer with 'manufacturer-recommended', but is ultimately up to an administrator (or administrator tool) to populate this field with whatever value makes sense for his/her environment or leave it out all together.  

Tom, I don't remember this field being REQUIRED.  My vote is for making it OPTIONAL.
