    In the realm of the document object extension, there are new
    conformance requirements such as the new Close-Job operation,
    additional document-format-xyz attributes that must be supported,
    Print-URI and Send-URI required, etc.

    Given that several other standards are being based upon the pending
    document object (and other approved) specs, it might make sense to
    bump the IPP version and require conformance to IPP/1.2 instead of
    IPP/1.1 + these other N specs to make it clear what the requirements
    are and improve interoperability.

    As it is, the REQUIRED operations in the document object spec
    (comments coming soon, promise!) and several other things which
    sound more like a new IPP version than a simple extension will
    yield a NO vote from my company...
