I like the new group names much better.

I think UPDF has an xsd for media names.  Can we use it?

3. Naming of attribute groups

   Printer State Attributes
   Printer Description Attributes
   Processing Defaults
   Processing Supported
   Processing Ready

   Job State Attributes
   Job Description Attributes
   Job Processing Attributes
   Default Document Processing Attributes

   Document State Attributes
   Document Description Attributes
   Document Processing Attributes

(NOTE: For the IPP literate state and description attributes
           correspond the IPP Job/Printer description attributes.
           Processing attributes correspond to job template
           attributes.  See the updated (v0.08) PWG Semantic Model for

UPDATE: For clarity the Job's "Default Document Processing
           Attributes" was renamed to "Document Processing
           Attributes". They are exactly the same as the "Document
           Processing Attributes" of the Document.

4. Example Schema file review
           a) The sub-groups of the processing attributes should be
                     broken out to their own xsd files
           b)Should the media names be added to the xsd file?  (No
                     plans at this time.  It will be discussed on the
                     mail list and phone conference)
                     i)   Current size of pwgattr.xsd is 43KB.
                     ii)  The size of the all the xsd files is 67KB.
                     iii) Should there be a proper media object in the
                               schema with its own xsd file?
The schema will be updated to reflect the changes in the Semantic
