    While it doesn't use IPP, Lexmark's MarkVision management application, MarkTrack
    job tracking application and the Lexmark Custom Drivers for Windows make use of
    machine readable notifications. These applications use IEEE 1284.1 (aka TIPSI)
    and provide a lot of information about print and job events on a real-time
    basis. I would expect a well written set of applications using INDP to be able
    to provide a similar set of functions.

    There you go..... real world, actual application of binary encoded, real time
    notifications of printer events.

    'nuff said.

    Jay,

    OK. In the interests of a reasonable discussion...

    I agree that no compelling reason for machine readable in the mail-to has
    been presented. I also note your comment that
    " I'll bet big money that the COSTS substantially outweigh
    the BENEFITS. Remember, you're talking some serious client-side
    installations to make this work as you describe".

    But then, aside from Novell's application and that fact that it is "cool"
    (which I think it is), I have not seen a compelling reason presented for
    machine readable information in any of the other notification delivery
    methods including INDP (or indeed, for INDP with human readable either) and
    I suggest that comment about "serious client-side
    installations to make this work" applies even more to INDP. If we are going
    to use your objective criteria, we should apply it consistently.
