Hi Carl,

In the actual template, it is clearly documented that the
(nearly corresponding) IPP attribute is called
'generated-natural-language-configured'. At several IPP WG
telecons, we have had concensus (I think) that it is
unreasonable for a (potentially non-IPP printer) to
have 'printer-location', etc, supported configured
in a different language than 'natural-language-configured'
(both SLP and IPP attribute). Therefore, the template
presumes that 'natural-language-supported' gives a good
set of values to choose a 'natural-language-configured'
value from.

Hope that helped. PLEASE read the following message closely
(referring to the latest text of the SLPv2 'printer:' template
as well) and send comments.

Cheers,
