My theory is that the watermark or something like it distinguishes the
document transaction as being in a "facsimile service mode" vs a remote
printing operation .. the document looks like a fax.

As for sender identification in IPP.. its not verbose ... you've got a URI
and thats it and I'm not sure that is good enough.

An IPP/ IFAX transaction would be point to point, unless you are gatewaying
of course.
