    Hi Mike,

    Great - thanks for the help!

    By the way, the IANA Registry *does* contain a complete list of IETF spec
    IPP attributes *with* source document and section references - starting with
    that list (just adding a REQ/OPT column) would hopefully ensure that we
    don't miss any IANA-registered ones.

    Harry Lewis and I have a somewhat ancient action item from PWG Steering
    Committee to gather up the IANA registrations (for attributes, operations,
    objects, etc.) from all the PWG specs - fortunately (for Harry and I), the
    IANA and IETF process people haven't been answering their mail (smile).

    Jerry Thrasher plans to talk to IETF Area Directors and IANA folks in
    person next week at IETF 72 in Dublin, Ireland and get some progress on
    IANA IPP and IANA Printer MIB registries.

    Cheers,
    - Ira
