I did a lousy job of proof-reading the Appendix.
I believe that the Media Size Self Describing Name can be used as keyword
values of the "media" Job Template attribute, including the
"media-supported", "media-default", and "media-ready" Printer attributes.
This is the most important contribution of the Media Standard to IPP/1.1
usage. So an extra line should be added to table about IPP/1.1:
Media Size Self Describing Name
keyword values of the "media" Job Template attribute, including the
"media-default", "media-ready", and "media-supported" Printer attributes
I also think that we need to add the phrase "keyword values of the" in front
of the entry for using Media Type Names as values of the "media" attribute,
so that it is clear that these Name values are to be represented in IPP as
'keyword' values, not as 'name' values, since the "media" attribute has
both: "media" (type3 keyword | name(MAX)). This clarification is
particularly important since our PWG Media Standardized Names standards
calls these values: "Names", not "keywords". Without such a clarification,
we could have serious interoperability problems. Remember that a client
should try to localize a 'keyword', but not a 'name', before displaying it
to a user. Also a 'name' value has a natural language associated with it,
either explicitly or implicitly, while a 'keyword' does not.

Subject: RE: IPP> Appendix to Reference Existing Usage
This doesn't really commit us either way, but it does
lower the expectation. I don't see any problem.

Good suggestion! I am going to reword slightly.
"...this document; existing references will suffice."
Too many "standards" in the original!

We might also add a sentence to indicate that we don't intend to keep
updating this Appendix when additional standards are published that could
use our names and/or reference our Media standard, such as UPnP. How
adding the following to the end of the first paragraph:
No attempt will be made to update this appendix when additional standards
reference this standard; such references to this standard will suffice.
Here is my proposal for a reference appendix that defines the usage of
names in existing standards. This is a compact version of the recent
proposal from Tom Hastings.
I intend to include this appendix in the next version of the Media Names
