Randy:

My biggest concern is that your proposal is TCP/IP only. Is does not solve
the problem for printers connected to servers via:

- Parallel
- Serial
- USB
- 1394
- IPX/SPX
- AppleTalk
- DLC/LLC
- etc., etc., etc.

If I'm going to use TCP/IP then I might as well go ahead with the HTTP
based implementation. You don't provide more status and control or
anything else that really buys me anything other than a slightly lighter
transport. It's just not work the trouble for the return on investment.
