    I'm a printing customer interested in this thing called IPP.
    Would someone be so kind as to elucidate the compelling reasons
    and benefits for having multiple notification recipients. I
    guess I understand the concept. I just don't quite see the value.

    Please be patient and contribute what you can to this thread,
    since it will likely be referenced later on when real customers
    ask these kinds of questions, and it would be nice to have the
    summary background and rationale in a small, digestable format.

    (Have you ever seen a customer choke when you hand them a copy
    of the IPP spec? It's not a pretty sight, I assure you. ;-)
