Hi Henrik,

This isn't very clear in the current IPP Notifications spec, but...

The 'job-state-changed' event does NOT send all state/state-reason
changes. The 'job-created', 'job-completed', and 'job-purged'
events are disjoint with 'job-state-changed'.

Now, I never liked the above ideas at all. And I think they
prevent more responsive implementations (of clients).

I like your idea for the list of the state and state-reason
triggers. And a single 'job-state-changed' event that
is more consistent in behavior (with some other wire
protocols, among other things).

Cheers,
