Sounds like a good extension to IPP and another notification event.

A couple of questions:

1. We would need to add a "time-limit" attribute to IPP that the requester
can supply. Probably should be a delta in some units like minutes
or hours. Which?

2. Probably should be a job-template attribute so that there could
be a "time-limit-default" that the administrator could configure,
and the "time-limit-supported" would be a range.

3. I assume from your description that the job is not deleted when it
exceeds the time-limit, correct? So it is just part of ISO DPA's
job-discard-time attribute.
