    As we decide what to make REQUIRED, RECOMMENDED, and OPTIONAL for IPP FAX,
    we should do so in terms of features in Internet FAX. So we need to study
    their documents more. To that end, I've down loaded a .zip file that has
    all of the current Internet FAX RFCs (up through RFC 2938) into:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/QUALDOCS/rfcs/internet-fax-rfcs-001201.zip

    I've also created a file that has all of their titles, dates, Abstracts and
    any updating or obsolescing and down loaded it in the same directory:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/QUALDOCS/rfcs/internet-fax-rfc-abstracts-001201.do

    RFC 2301 - File Format for Internet Fax, March 1998
       This document describes the TIFF (Tag Image File Format)
       representation of image data specified by the ITU-T Recommendations
       for black-and-white and color facsimile. This file format
       specification is commonly known as TIFF-FX. It formally defines
       minimal, extended and lossless JBIG modes (Profiles S, F, J) for
       black-and-white fax, and base JPEG, lossless JBIG and Mixed Raster
       Content modes (Profiles C, L, M) for color and grayscale fax. These
       modes or profiles correspond to the content of the applicable ITU-T
       Recommendations. Files formatted according to this specification use
       the image/tiff MIME Content Type.
    RFC 2302 - Tag Image File Format (TIFF) - image/tiff MIME Sub-type
    Registration, March 1998
       This document describes the registration of the MIME sub-type
       image/tiff. The baseline encoding is defined by [TIFF]. This
       document refines an earlier sub-type registration in RFC 1528
       [TPC.INT].
    RFC 2303 - Minimal PSTN address format in Internet Mail, March 1998
       This memo describes the MINIMAL addressing method to encode PSTN
       addresses into e-mail addresses and the standard extension mechanism
       to allow definition of further standard elements. The opposite
       problem, i.e. to allow a traditional numeric-only PSTN device user to
       access the e-mail transport service, is not discussed here.
    RFC 2304 - Minimal FAX address format in Internet Mail, March 1998
       This memo describes the MINIMAL addressing method and standard
       extensions to encode FAX addresses in e-mail addresses, as required
       in reference [13]. The opposite problem, i.e. to allow a traditional
       numeric-only fax device user to access the e-mail transport service,
       is not discussed here.
    RFC 2305 - A Simple Mode of Facsimile Using Internet Mail, March 1998
       This specification provides for "simple mode" carriage of facsimile
       data over the Internet. Extensions to this document will follow.
       The current specification employs standard protocols and file formats
       such as TCP/IP, Internet mail protocols [1, 2, 3], MIME [4, 16, 17],
       and TIFF for Facsimile [5,6,19]. It can send images not only to
       other Internet-aware facsimile devices but also to Internet-native
       systems, such as PCs with common email readers which can handle MIME
       mail and TIFF for Facsimile data. The specification facilitates
       communication among existing facsimile devices, Internet mail agents,
       and the gateways which connect them.
    RFC 2306 - Tag Image File Format (TIFF) - F Profile for Facsimile, March
    1998
       This document describes in detail the definition of TIFF-F that is
       used to store facsimile images. The TIFF-F encoding has been
       folklore with no standard reference definition before this document.
    RFC 2426 - vCard MIME Directory Profile - September 1998
       This memo defines the profile of the MIME Content-Type [MIME-DIR] for
       directory information for a white-pages person object, based on a
       vCard electronic business card. The profile definition is independent
       of any particular directory service or protocol. The profile is
       defined for representing and exchanging a variety of information
       about an individual (e.g., formatted and structured name and delivery
       addresses, email address, multiple telephone numbers, photograph,
       logo, audio clips, etc.). The directory information used by this
       profile is based on the attributes for the person object defined in
       the X.520 and X.521 directory services recommendations. The profile
       also provides the method for including a [VCARD] representation of a
       white-pages directory entry within the MIME Content-Type defined by
       the [MIME-DIR] document.
    RFC 2506 - Media Feature Tag Registration Procedure, March 1999
       Recent Internet applications, such as the World Wide Web, tie
       together a great diversity in data formats, client and server
       platforms, and communities. This has created a need for media
       feature descriptions and negotiation mechanisms in order to identify
       and reconcile the form of information to the capabilities and
       preferences of the parties involved.

       Extensible media feature identification and negotiation mechanisms
       require a common vocabulary in order to positively identify media
       features. A registration process and authority for media features is
       defined with the intent of sharing this vocabulary between
       communicating parties. In addition, a URI tree is defined to enable
       sharing of media feature definitions without registration.

       This document defines a registration procedure which uses the
       Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) as a central registry for
       the media feature vocabulary.

       Please send comments to the CONNEG working group at <ietf-
       medfree@imc.org>. Discussions of the working group are archived at
       <URL: http://www.imc.org/ietf-medfree/>.
    RFC 2530 - Indicating Supported Media Features Using Extensions to DSN and
    MDN, March 1999
       There is a need in Internet mail and Internet fax for a recipient to
       indicate the media features it supports so that messages can be
       generated by senders without exceeding the recipient's abilities.

       This memo describes a format for generating Message Disposition
       Notifications [RFC2298] and Delivery Status Notifications [RFC1894]
       which contain such information. This information can be used by
       senders to avoid exceeding the recipient's capabilities when sending
       subsequent messages.
    RFC 2531 - Content Feature Schema for Internet Fax, March 1999
    Obsoleted by RFC 2879
       This document defines a content feature schema that is a profile of
       the media feature registration mechanisms [1,2,3] for use in
       performing capability identification between extended Internet fax
       systems [5].

       This document does not describe any specific mechanisms for
       communicating capability information, but does presume that any such
       mechanisms will transfer textual values. It specifies a textual
       format to be used for describing Internet fax capability information.
    RFC 2532 - Extended Facsimile Using Internet Mail, March 1999
       This document describes extensions to "Simple Mode of Facsimile Using
       Internet Mail" [RFC2305] and describes additional features, including
       transmission of enhanced document characteristics (higher resolution,
       color) and confirmation of delivery and processing.

       These additional features are designed to provide the highest level
       of interoperability with the existing and future standards-compliant
       email infrastructure and mail user agents, while providing a level of
       service that approximates the level currently enjoyed by fax users.

       The IETF has been notified of intellectual property rights claimed in
       regard to some or all of the specification contained in this
       document. For more information consult the online list of claimed
       rights in <http://www.ietf.org/ipr.html>.
    RFC 2533 - A Syntax for Describing Media Feature Sets, March 1999
    Updated by RFC 2738 and by RFC 2938
       A number of Internet application protocols have a need to provide
       content negotiation for the resources with which they interact [1].
       A framework for such negotiation is described in [2], part of which
       is a way to describe the range of media features which can be handled
       by the sender, recipient or document transmission format of a
       message. A format for a vocabulary of individual media features and
       procedures for feature registration are presented in [3].

       This document introduces and describes a syntax that can be used to
       define feature sets which are formed from combinations and relations
       involving individual media features. Such feature sets are used to
       describe the media feature handling capabilities of message senders,
       recipients and file formats.

       An algorithm for feature set matching is also described here.
    RFC 2534 - Media Features for Display, Print, and Fax, March 1999
       This specification defines some common media features for describing
       image resolution, size, color, and image representation methods that
       are common to web browsing, printing, and facsimile applications.
       These features are registered for use within the framework of [REG].
    RFC 2542 - Terminology and Goals for Internet Fax, March 1999
       This document defines a number of terms useful for the discussion of
       Internet Fax. In addition, it describes the goals of the Internet Fax
       working group and establishes a baseline of desired functionality
       against which protocols for Internet Fax can be judged. It
       encompasses the goals for all modes of facsimile delivery, including
       'real-time', 'session', and 'store and forward'. Different levels of
       desirability are indicated throughout the document.
    RFC 2703 - Protocol-independent Content Negotiation Framework, September
    1999
       A number of Internet application protocols have a need to provide
       content negotiation for the resources with which they interact. MIME
       media types [1,2] provide a standard method for handling one major
       axis of variation, but resources also vary in ways which cannot be
       expressed using currently available MIME headers.

       This memo sets out terminology, an abstract framework and goals for
       protocol-independent content negotiation, and identifies some
       technical issues which may need to be addressed.

       The abstract framework does not attempt to specify the content
       negotiation process, but gives an indication of the anticipated scope
       and form of any such specification. The goals set out the desired
       properties of a content negotiation mechanism.
    RFC 2738 - Corrections to "A Syntax for Describing Media Feature Sets", Dec
    1999
    Updates 2533
       In RFC 2533, "A Syntax for Describing Media Feature Sets", an
       expression format is presented for describing media feature
       capabilities using simple media feature tags.

       This memo contains two corrections to that specification: one fixes
       an error in the formal syntax specification, and the other fixes an
       error in the rules for reducing feature comparison predicates.
    RFC 2879 - Content Feature Schema for Internet Fax (V2), August 2000
    Obsoletes RFC 2531
       This document defines a content media feature schema for Internet
       fax.

       It is a profile of the media feature registration mechanisms [1,2,3]
       for use in performing capability identification between extended
       Internet fax systems [5]. It replaces and updates the feature schema
       defined in RFC 2531.
    RFC 2880 - Internet Fax T.30 Feature Mapping, August 2000
       This document describes how to map Group 3 fax capability
       identification bits, described in ITU T.30 [6], into the Internet fax
       feature schema described in "Content feature schema for Internet fax"
       [4].

       This is a companion to the fax feature schema document [4], which
       itself defines a profile of the media feature registration mechanisms
       [1,2,3], for use in performing capability identification between
       extended Internet fax systems [5].
    RFC 2912 - Indicating Media Features for MIME Content, September 2000
       In "A Syntax for Describing Media Feature Sets", an expression format
       is presented for describing media feature capabilities using simple
       media feature tags.

       This memo defines a Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME)
       'Content-features:' header that can be used to annotate a MIME
       message part using this expression format, and indicates some ways it
       might be used.
    RFC 2913 - MIME Content Types in Media Feature Expressions, September 2000
       In "A Syntax for Describing Media Feature Sets", an expression format
       is presented for describing media feature capabilities using simple
       media feature tags.

       This memo defines a media feature tag whose value is a Multipurpose
       Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) content type. This allows the
       construction of feature expressions that take account of the MIME
       content type of the corresponding data.
    RFC 2938 - Identifying Composite Media Features, September 2000
    Updates 2533
       In RFC 2533, an expression format is presented for describing media
       feature capabilities as a combination of simple media feature tags.

       This document describes an abbreviated format for a composite media
       feature set, based upon a hash of the feature expression describing
       that composite.
