    I think that job-uri examples would be just as useless as the current
    printer-uri examples; most embedded (read: printer and print server)
    implementations use something like:

         ipp://hostname/ipp
         ipp://hostname/ipp/portname

    However, these are not listed as examples.

    Similarly, do we show:

         ipp://hostname/jobs/123
         ipp://hostname/ipp/job-123

    as valid job-uri values, when only the IPP server can provide the
    correct values, and even then some current implementations (read:
    HP) don't really support Get-Jobs or Get-Job-Attributes.
