    IPP (RFC2911) has a number of media names that include engineering sizes
    taken from [ASME-Y14.1M]. For some reason we only included them as media
    names (e.g., iso-a1x3-transparent), and not as media size names (e.g.,
    iso-a1x3) in IPP. These size names are:

    iso-a1x3, iso-a1x4
    iso-a2x3, iso-a2x4, iso-a2x5
    iso-a3x3, iso-a3x4, iso-a3x5, iso-a3x6, iso-a3x7
    iso-a4x3, iso-a4x4, iso-a4x5, iso-a4x6, iso-a4x7, iso-a4x8, iso-a4x9

    Should we add them?

    Someone should look at [ASME-Y14.1M] and get the proper length dimensions
    (which aren't in IPP), to go with the width dimensions which are in IPP.

    The latest version is now available at:


    The major change is the merging of the envelope sizes
    with the other tables and the separation of the media
    type with the size. In addition I have added the
    definition of a format for custom media types and color
    per a request from Norbert.

    There are still two open issues that I am waiting for
    clarification from Tom.

    1. Tom added a reference [REG] in section 3, but no
    corresponding entry in the References section.

    2. The ABNF for the size name in section 5.1 may be
    incorrect. I am not an ABNF expert, but I believe that
        | "-" | "-" ) should be simply | "-" )

    I will try to attend the IPP teleconference tomorrow
    to discuss any other issues concerning this document.
