Oh. Thanks, I missed out on the underlying assumption.

I agree store and forward is a valid fallback for IPP and really
have no problem with that.

Can we make sure we document this assumption somewhere in OUR
documentation (this discussion group's work...i.e. the charter we are
working on?). Something like "...devices with full time connection to the
Internet". That will help others figure out that this is not the right IPP
subset to be used for their devices.
