I agree 110%. That fundamental belief is one of the most critical
assumptions for which SENSE was designed. Namely, require the
managed entity (ie, a printer) to provide minimal scalability for
key services (ie, just a few simultaneous client accesses), then
route that information into a generalized client/server system
with a very high degree of scalability.
