    Hi Michael,

    First, I suggest that any Subscription with a missing/empty
    "notify-recipient-uri" MUST support retrieval of those
    notifications via IPPGET in-band and MAY support one or
    more other client pull methods for notification retrieval.

    Second, I agree that we have an ambiguity about WHICH are
    the supported client pull methods, so how about a second
    attribute (strictly alternate to "notify-recipient-uri",
    so that one or the other MUST be in every Subscription),
    called "notify-pull-method (1setOf keyword)", so that the
    Printer attribute "notify-pull-method-supported" can enumerate
    all the client pull methods supported by an implementation.

    OK?

    Cheers,
    - Ira McDonald

    No argument here.

    Right, but that doesn't tell us what operation to use for a
    specific subscription, right? :)

    Currently we can say that if there is no notify-recipient-uri,
    then use IPPGET and Get-Notifications for the subscription, but
    what about other methods that might need the same treatment?

    I know I'm nitpicking, but we need to make sure that the spec
    addresses these issues so that future extensions (and there *will*
    be more extensions I'm sure) can work together and not confuse
    clients...
