    I don't think we want a "recipient name" attribute to specify the
    originating user's real name. That's just plain confusing to me.

    Better to add "job-originating-user-real-name" and
    "job-real-user-name" attributes to specify the same thing, if that's
    what you want (I suspect the printing system would be capable of
    converting the job-user-name to a full name...)
