    Has the possibility for supporting SMS/Pager notifications been dropped? I
    dont find anything about in the Notification spec.

    In Europe now almost every man woman and child has an SMS phone, so SMS
    would be the notification method of choice where a human is the recipient.
    I think it is even more important than email notification. Our printers are
    usually located remotely from the customer submitting the job, so IPP is
    useful for that. On the other hand the person who is going to pick up the
    printed output will usually be travelling around. Many are freelance
    graphic designers. For them, an SMS notification is perfect. Another point
    is that the machine operator is usually wandering around doing all sorts of
    jobs, so SMS is the ideal way to notify the operator of any abnormal machine
    conditions.

    For our customers I think SMS is by far the most important notification
    mechanism, so we would implement that first and then think about maybe doing
    some of the others. Old style pagers seem to have gone the way of 8-track
    stereo.
