Yes, the IPPFAX spec can expressly require or forbid certain PDF features.
In particular (I sincerely hope), IPPFAX can specifically cite and require
(for minimum conformance) exactly ONE of the profiles of PDF in the ISO
PDF/X standards. That way we get a stable/tested profile from the pre-press

Subject: IFX> PDF not streamable?
In regard to using PDF as the data format for IPPFAX, I remember someone
raising the concern that the data format is not very streamable. According
to the spec (section 5.17) an incremental update at the very end of a big
PDF file can change the way the first page is rendered. Is this still a
concern of the group? This would be an issue for small-footprint
implementations of IPPFAX.
Can the IPPFAX spec be written to expressly require or forbid certain
features of PDF?
