    Hi Ron,

    I spoke unclearly. Some subsequent version MAY
    fold in Mikael Pahmp's work. One of the key
    problems with his work is that a reasonable
    URL scheme name needs to be chosen and registered
    with IANA. The current 'raw-tcp:' does NOT clarify
    that it's doing print service. I've suggested that
    'printraw:' would be a better name.

    There is also some potential advantage to separate
    I-Ds/RFCs for non-IETF standards track protocols
    (like HP port 9100 and Novell NDPS). This tends
    to map better to the LDAP auxiliary object classes
    for each print protocol.

    Cheers,
    - Ira

    Ira,

    I thought you said that this version would also fold in the raw
    TCP service type from the draft by Mikael Pahmp.
    (draft-ietf-svrloc-rawtcp-printer-scheme-01.txt)
    Did I hear wrong?
