Right now I'm more concerned with notification. As I've pointed
out before, you can already do the "manual" specification of a
recipient via a cover page. Just adding an attribute for the
recipient doesn't automate things much - the notification will
be the feature that will make it worthwhile.

I'm thinking more along the lines of a per-printer (or in the case
of CUPS, also a per-server) subscription so that you can be notified
when a new job is created, processed, and/or completed (depending on
what you use it for) and take the appropriate action.
Per-job notifications would have to be initiated by the sender,
which I think can be handled properly by the current spec without
a new attribute...
I guess the main change to the current notification scheme would be
to allow for a filter of some sort (e.g. job-created-mine event)
for per-printer subscriptions. Then you'd only receive notifications
for jobs created by you or destined for you.
