Do you anticipate that printer URLs will become a mechanism for
party-to-party communication, like FAX is now? If so, then what is the
difference between a printer and a FAX?

Doesn't "printer" imply a device that I use to create a physical _copy_ of
my document, while a FAX implies that I want to electronically _transmit_ my
document to someone else? IOW, many FAX devices nowadays contain no paper -
received FAXs are displayed electronically.

If IPP is supposed to be a party-to-party communication mechanism, then it
may make sense to include this in the phone book entry for a Service
Provider's contact info.
