    I had an action item from the last meeting to write up the
    "job-recipient-name" Job Template attribute. Such an attribute is needed
    when a user submits a print job that is intended to be picked up by another
    user, such as is typical when an IPP job is submitted across a firewall.
    This attribute will also be useful for QUALDOCS.

    It was suggested just to send this as a mail note first, instead of as a
    complete IETF specification. Here is the proposed definition. Please send
    comments to both mailing list:

      +===================+======================+======================+
      | Job Attribute |Printer: Default Value| Printer: Supported |
      | | Attribute | Values Attribute |
      +===================+======================+======================+
      | job-recipient- | job-recipient-name- | job-recipient-name- |
      | name (name(MAX)) | default (name(MAX)) | supported (0:255) |
      +===================+======================+======================+

    job-recipient-name (name(MAX))

    This attribute contains the name of the person that is to receive the output
    of the job. The value of the "job-recipient-name" attribute is commonly
    printed on job sheets printed with the job. An example of another use of
    the "job-recipient-name" attribute is if the printer accesses a database to
    get job delivery instructions for the recipient of a job. A zero-length
    value indicates that there is no job recipient name.

    If the client omits this attribute in a create request, the printer MAY use
    the "job-recipient-name-default" (name(MAX)) Printer attribute value, unless
    it has not been configured by the administrator, or MAY use the
    "authenticated user" name (see [IPP-MOD] section 8.3), depending on
    implementation.

    The "job-recipient-name-supported" (integer(0:255) Printer attribute
    indicates the maximum length that the Printer will accept for the
    "job-recipient-name" Job Template attribute without truncation. A
    conforming Printer MUST be able to accept 255 octets (i.e., MAX) without
    truncation. However, an IPP Printer MAY be implemented as a gateway to
    another print system that cannot accept the full 255 octet range, in which
    case the value will be truncated to the maximum length specified by the
    "job-recipient-name-supported" attribute.
