    Dennis Carney (IBM) recently observed that the IPP Document Object
    spec was starting to sound a lot like "IPP/1.2". Below, Michael
    Sweet (CUPS) again raises the possibility of an "IPP.1.2".

    Is this a worthwhile idea?

    _If_ there was at least one other editor who was MS Word literate
    (Dennis Carney, Tom Hastings, ...?), I would volunteer to collaborate
    on writing an "IPP/1.2" spec with new significantly higher REQUIRED
    features that consisted entirely (or almost entirely) of pointers to
    the definitions of operations, objects, and attributes in the over 30
    documents (IETF and IEEE/ISTO) that currently specify parts of IPP.

    Any takers?
