Question
1.54 Can't put one staple through multiple documents that start on new
sheets
The three values for "multiple-document-handling" control whether the
documents are treated as one or separate. When separate, each document is
forced onto a new sheet. But when the documents are treated as one, each
document is not forced onto a new sheet. This causes a problem if you are
stapling multiple two-sided documents with a single staple through the
entire job. We need another value for single-document that does force the
component documents onto new sheets.

Discussion
The current spec for 'single-document' is:
'single-document': If a Job object has multiple documents, say, the document
data is called a and b, then the result of processing all the document data
(a and then b) MUST be treated as a single sequence of media sheets for
finishing operations; that is, finishing would be performed on the
concatenation of the sequences a(*),b(*). The Printer object MUST NOT force
the data in each document instance to be formatted onto a new print-stream
page, nor to start a new impression on a new media sheet. If more than one
copy is made, the ordering of the sets of media sheets resulting from
processing the document data MUST be a(*), b(*), a(*), b(*), ..., and the
Printer object MUST force each copy (a(*),b(*)) to start on a new media
sheet.

Add a new value, called, say 'single-document-forced-new-sheet' to go with
the current three values: 'single-document',
'separate-documents-uncollated-copies', and
'separate-documents-collated-copies'

Proposed Answer
Add the following new keyword value to section 4.2.4:

'single-document-forced-new-sheet': Same as 'single-document', except that
the Printer object MUST force the document data in each document instance to
place the first impression on a new media sheet. This allows multiple
documents to be stapled together with a single staple where each document
starts on a new sheet.
