Ira,
Yes, I would be interested, although I think there might be some confusion
between specifying a pager or short message service as an IPP notification
mechanism and actualy implementing it.  Implementations are likely to differ
between countries.  The original IPP notification spec had a provision for
pager notification, and that was all we needed.

I think that the special requirements of SMS may be similar to the Japanese
i-mode.  Even if it is possible to request an i-mode notification as an
email, it might be better to treat it as a pager/short message notification
for IPP purposes.

Perhaps Yuji Sasaki is interested in joining in.
