That is really a wonderful idea. The IMPP folks are focused on the IM
application but its clear to me and many others ... especially in the
Internet Telephony/SIP crowd that IM has many many more uses than simply
chat. The lurker quotient on that list is pretty high since, I think, a lot
of folks do not want to distract the current Goals effort.

It may have a lot of value to simply throw a message over to them
indicating the strong interest of the Printer community in the proposed
IMPP protocol for use by IPP for notifications.

This is exactly the kind of cross-fertilization of IETF WG's that too often
does not happen since existing WG's often put on blinders to other work

I'd like to help with this if I could... maybe its just a draft message of
interest...to the IMPP list etc.
