It's easy to misinterpret when treating complex job production
instructions as exceptions...

Rather than straightforward...

Oh, well I guess I must have misinterpreted this line:

I read that as exceptions of one copy of a document in which all other
copies are the same.  (Isn't that what "copy" means?  Oh well.)

I would have thought there was some sort of official term for a
scenario that implies "Here's a file.  Print it once using these
attributes,
then print it another way, then print it another way..."

Thanks for the clarification.
