    DSC, or Document Structuring Conventions, are structured comments that appear
    in PostScript source. This material tells you, among other things, what
    PostScript features it uses. PostScript processors can and do read this stuff
    and dispatch documents to devices with the appropriate capabilities to render
    it.

    This isn't currently integrated with media feature tags, but it could be. The
    hard part -- figuring out what capabilities are separable -- is already done.
