SM> "-actual" multivalue types issue

My first comment is that the data types of the processing attribute should
be the same as the base's.  The base's definition determines if the semantic
element can be multivalued.  If the base can not be multivalued the actual
should not be either.

Subject: SM> ACT - IPP "-actual" attributes downloaded, version 0.1


I have downloaded the first draft (version 0.1) of the document 'IPP: "
-actual" attributes extension'.  The document is 12 pages long, but the
proposal is only 5 of those pages.  The document is located at:

This document will be discussed on the October 31 Semantic Model
teleconference.  Any comments should be sent to the IPP mailing list.

This document defines an extension to the Internet Printing Protocol/1.0
(IPP/1.0) [RFC2566, RFC2565] & IPP/1.1 [RFC2911, RFC2910] for the OPTIONAL
"-actual" set of Job Description attributes that correspond to Job Template
attributes defined in IPP. These "-actual" attributes allow the client to
determine the true results of a print job regardless of what was specified
in the Create-Job or Print-Job operation.
