    Are you guys talking about receipt of event notifications or receipt of the
    printed job output indicated as a Job object attribute and banner page text?

    If event notifications, what events (job held or job completed or what?) and
    how is the event specified? Hopefully in some Per-Printer or Per-Job

    Now *that's* a good idea! :)

    I'd only ammend this to add an empty job-recipient-name attribute
    means that the actual recipient is unknown, and a member of the
    job-recipient-role attribute should be used instead.
