Summary: This mail message proposes a change in the specification of
Get-Jobs to remove an extra level of Natural Language Override at the job
level. With this change Get-Jobs would be handled the same as any other
operation with respect to the Natural Language Override mechanism at the
attribute level.

* The proposal to vote on is to delete the indicated paragraph
* below from Section Get-Jobs Response.
* Please indicate your acceptance or rejection of this proposal
* on the mailing list by Monday, Nov 2.

This change will affect implementations that correctly implement the June
1998 Mode and Semantics specification. However, we suspect that many
implementations may have ignored this feature, so that deleting this
paragraph will have no impact on them. Implementers, is this suspicion


Currently, Section Get-Jobs Response contains the following

For any job submitted in a different natural language than
the natural language that the Printer object is returning in the
"attributes-natural-language" operation attribute in the Get-Jobs response,
the Printer MUST indicate the submitted natural language by returning the
Job object's "attributes-natural-language" as the first Job object
attribute, which overrides the "attributes-natural-language" operation
attribute value being returned by the Printer object. If any returned
'text' or 'name' attribute includes a Natural Language Override as described
in the sections and, the Natural Language Override overrides
the Job object's "attributes-natural-language" value and/or the
"attributes-natural-language" operation attribute value.
