Tom,

Any titles would be better than what we have now.

If I recall correctly, the title "Set 1" was originally suggested by Paul
Moore as a way to identify the set without having to generate a
complex title.  Thus the original "Set 1" was just to be  "Additional
Operations, Set 1".  I now don't remember what the title evolved
into before it was integrated into IPP/1.1, but it most likely did
change.

I agree that more descriptive titles are better, as long as they are
simple.  Either of your suggestions are fine, but I would not
recommend changing "Set 3" to "Set 1".  We have been using
the "Set" label for so long this would add significant confusion.
