    > Validate-Job operation as specified in section 7."

    > 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.
