Carl,

We considered your request to either add 'any' as a new out-of-band value,
or to extend the existing 'unknown' out-of-band (OOB) value to mean any.
The group agreed to add 'any', since it requires an updated client to not be
confused querying the Printer before sending the job, if the client queries
the Printer as to what it supports before sending the job.  (On the other
hand, an existing client that is simply querying the Printer will become
confused by a new OOB value).

You only requested it for "document-format-supported" (for use by a Printer
object that represents a Document Repository, instead of an output device).

However, in this example you are suggesting that the OOB value could also be
used as the value of the "redirection-printers-supported" (1setOf uri)
Printer attribute, correct?

Tom

The Printer could return the OOB 'unknown' value in
"redirection-printers-supported" and let the client attempt a Redirect-Job
to any printer-uri.  The operation will either succeed or return an error
code.

But this brings up the issue of how we specify "all" servers,
i.e. we don't want to enumerate every printer-uri on the planet,
do we? :)
