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.
