Hi all,

I got hit with another question internally that I couldn't answer.
Currently, the
following attributes are all in the finishing group:

			<xsd:element ref="Copies" minOccurs="0"/>
			<xsd:element ref="PageOverride" minOccurs="0"
			<xsd:element ref="PagesPerSubset" minOccurs="0"
			<xsd:element ref="PageRanges" minOccurs="0"

It seems to us that you would really want these at a higher level - e.g.,
ought to be able to select PageRanges for an imposition, etc.  The way it's
currently structured, it appears that these would only apply to things in
finishing group - are we reading this correctly?  

Along these lines - do these attributes really live in a new object sitting
inside documentprocessingattributes that allows us to select
overrides, ranges, etc.) and apply any of the rendering/imposition/finishing
attributes against?  This would be something along the line of JDF runlists.
Or - do we just say that these kinds of jobs are outside the scope of the
