OK, some general comments:
1. For the media type names, is "continuous" considered to be
the same as "roll"? I ask only because roll paper does not
have the perforations that continuous forms have.
I suggest adding a "roll" media type or ammending the
description for "continuous" to include roll type media
with no perforations.
2. The current media types don't address variations of particular
media types; these variations are generally the "finish" of
the media (glossy, matte, etc.), so I would recommend adding
standard "media finish" values that can be used to identify
an exact media type, rather than overloading the current
media types with additional name-finish varients.
3. There is presently no way to define the min & max custom
media size; this is absolutely required for this to work
in the real world (otherwise how do you know what media
sizes are valid?), e.g.:
"custom-size-minimum." short-dim "-" long-dim
"custom-size-maximum." short-dim "-" long-dim
This would essentially research the "size-minimum" and
"size-maximum" names, but allow a device to communicate
that any size from the minimum to the maximum dimensions
is supported. If these sizes are not available then the
client should only select media sizes from the provided
