Carl,

A couple of questions on your proposed operation attributes:

2) Rename "Backspace-Current-Job" to "Space-Current-Job" and add these
OPTIONAL
request operation attributes:

snip...

"non-process-run-out" (boolean) specifies whether the printer should perform
an
NPRO (move the last printed sheet to the stacker) before restarting
printing.
An NPRO makes it easier to see exactly where the spacing took place.

TH1> What is the behavior if the client omits this attribute? The 'true' or
the 'false' behavior? (I hope it isn't implementation-dependent).

TH2> What is the behavior if the implementation does not support this
operation attribute? The 'true' or the 'false' behavior? (I hope it isn't
implementation-dependent).

snip...

3) Add the following OPTIONAL operation attributes to the Shutdown-Printer
request:
"non-process-run-out" (boolean) specifies whether the printer should perform
an
NPRO (move the last printed sheet to the stacker) before shutting down.

TH3> What is the behavior if the client omits this attribute? The 'true' or
the 'false' behavior? (I hope it isn't implementation-dependent).

TH4> What is the behavior if the implementation does not support this
operation attribute? The 'true' or the 'false' behavior? (I hope it isn't
implementation-dependent).

"synchronize" (boolean) specifies whether to synchronize the checkpoint data
for
the current job with the pages that have actually printed. If this
attribute is
supported, a value of true implies that the Printer will be able to resume
the
job at the point of synchronization when restarted.

TH5> What is the behavior if the client omits this attribute? The 'true' or
the 'false' behavior? (I hope it isn't implementation-dependent).

TH6> What is the behavior if the implementation does not support this
operation attribute? The 'true' or the 'false' behavior? (I hope it isn't
implementation-dependent).

snip...
