IPP> Notification content

In Austin, I think we discussed the IPP notification requirement that a=
ny
attribute may be requested during registration for a given event. I thi=
nk the
requirement stems from the notion that notification content should just=
"mimic"
the response to a query. But this is probably unrealistic. A query/resp=
onse is
synchronous - during which, the "agent's" job is to gather the requeste=
d
information and package the response. With notifications, you pre-regis=
ter for
asynchronous events. It would be a much greater burden on the agent, wh=
ether it
be IPP, SNMP or whatever, to maintain, not only of who wants which
notifications, but also what information they requested with each type =
of event!
