On your concern about the printer-uri changing if you move the printer. As
the printer-uri is a logical attribute, which is then mapped to a physical
address, I don't see that it would be less flexible than using the
printer-name. In both cases you either want to change it or keep it when you
move a printer.

Subject: LDAP comment

Here is a comment from our internal review of the LDAP schema that
I thought I'd share with the IPP group and solicit comments.

   Page 7, sections 3.3 and 3.4. Referring to
   the structural class printerService and the
   Aux class printerServiceAuxClass.

   Are we sure that printer-uri is the right
   attribute for naming these services. What if the
   physical printer and associated printer service moves
   from one domain to another. The printer-uri would
   change, thus the instance name would change.  The
   question is whether printer-name might be a better
   choice for naming in this case than printer-uri.

   If we stick with printer-uri, it might be useful to
   include an example of the above.
