    1. I think that the new paragraph that you added to Section 6 "IPPFAX
    Printer Description Attributes", should be moved to Section 7 "Sender
    Validation of the Receiver's Capabilities" where Sender requirements are
    discussed:

    "A Sender MUST NOT use any OPTIONAL feature in PDFax unless it first queries
    the Receiver to confirm that the Receiver supports the feature. If the
    feature is not supported in the Receiver then the Sender MUST NOT use the
    OPTIONAL feature. A Sender MUST NOT use any feature that is prohibited in
    PDFax [ifx-pdfax] specification."

    2. Also, then the Conformance Section doesn't need to be changed, since it
    already has the statement:

    "5. The Sender MUST validate that the target Printer is IPPFAX-capable using
    the Get-Printer-Attributes operation and validate that the Receiver supports
    the job using the Validate-Job operation as specified in section 7."

    3. Again, the SHOULD in section 1.1 point 1 needs to be changed to MUST to
    agree with this new paragraph, as does the second sentence in section 7.

    Gail and Rick,

    Here are some minor comments on the Draft 12:

    1. The new paragraph added to section 6 is good to have:

    "A Sender MUST NOT use any OPTIONAL feature in PDFax unless it first queries
    the Receiver to confirm that the Receiver supports the feature. If the
    feature is not supported in the Receiver then the Sender MUST NOT use the
    OPTIONAL feature. A Sender MUST NOT use any feature that is prohibited in
    PDFax [ifx-pdfax] specification."

    1a. However, it would be better to put it in the Conformance Section 15 or
    somewhere else. The conformance section 15 needs to make reference to it.

    1b. Section 1.1, point number 1 isn't as strong as your new paragraph:

    "1. Get-Printer-Attributes - Sender MUST verify that the Printer object is
    an (IPPFAX) Receiver and SHOULD determine some of the Receiver's basic
    capabilities, such as PDFax profiles supported."

    This paragraph only says SHOULD, but paragraph 2:

    "2. Validate-Job - Sender MUST verify that the Receiver can support the Job
    attributes that the Sender will send in the IPPFAX Job."

    requires that the Sender do a Validate-Job in order to ensure that
    unsupported attributes are not being submitted.

    2. The keywords in the new table 5 and 6 need to be made all lower case and
    use hyphens between words to follow IPP keyword rules.

    I'll try calling in during the 1-3 PM CST time as well.

    Thanks for setting up the call-in.

    Tom
