    Lloyd McIntyre called me with some comments on the original paper:
    1. Section 4.1, "scaling". He was concerned about the "scaling" attribute,
    since he felt that a Printer MUST NOT apply scaling, unless the client
    explicitly allowed it. This would mean that we shouldn't define a
    "scaling-default" that would allow the Printer to apply scaling, when the
    client didn't explicitly allow it. In the definition, we should also make
    it clearer that the attribute is the client allowing the Printer to perform
    2. Section 4.1, "scaling". In answer to your question:
    The scaling is calculated separately for each page. (ISSUE: What should be
    done concerning media selection when the TIFF image sizes are different on a
    page by page basis? Either determine media size by media size attribute or
    let the receiver determine for itself the media to be used on each page.)


    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"
    />He felt that the scaling decision made by the Printer (provided the client
    allows it at all), should be made by the Printer for each page, given the
    size of the image and the media size specified in the TIFF body for each
    page and the medium that the Printer was going to print on for each page.
    So far, the client can only specify the media for the document as a whole
    using IPP attributes. (Presumably, we're not ready for the "page-exception"
    (collection) attribute that would allow the client to specify the media for
    page ranges, right?).


    3. He suggested that we should pick a more user-friendly attribute name,
    than "uif-conneg", perhaps, something like, "uif-capabilities", or
    "uif-receiver-capabilities" or "uif-printer-capabilities".


    4. He'll try to read your white paper with the CONNEG basic requirements for
    each profile on the plane to Brazil (ITU meeting) and send us some comments.
    I have him the URL at:

    He'll be back in three weeks. In the meantime, if we have questions, we can
    contact Rob Buckley, who is also a co-author of the TIFF/FX spec.
