I favor the proposal to simplify.

1. I think we somewhat overkilled it in the first place
2. This was noticed by Keith Moore - Area Director
3. Several implementors have shared their experience regarding complexi=
ty,
confusion etc.

I agree now is the BEST time to make these corrections to the spec and =
I
believe the change is justified based on early implementation experienc=
e.

Well, to be honest we shelved implementation of NLO until some of
these issues got resolved (the current implementation just uses the
current locale, which for CUPS covers 99% of all our users).

The proposed changes would definitely make things a lot simpler and
still support language changes "on the fly". I think it would be a
mistake *not* to make the changes before 1.0 is finalized, since once
it is finalized we're probably stuck with it as long as IPP is around..=
