Jay,

I didn't add a smiley face because it is not funny. The fact is that no
printer OEM ever wants to drop any protocol or service. And since this
is so, I would be less bothered about adding some additional protocols,
if they are useful, then hearing continuing demands for NetBEUI (for
example). I would love to drop LPD (fat chance) and would gladly add a
nice, well defined, well behaved protocol.
