    Feedback on meeting notes:

    1. Just to be clear, the consensus was to remove the
        document-format requirements entirely?

    2. WRT XPS, it is patent-encumbered and not covered by any
        existing ISO, IETF, PWG, or W3C standards. It may make a
        fine high-level PDL, but IMHO it isn't a good fit for a
        required document-format.

    3. WRT BMLinkS, this is the first I have heard of it. The
        web site indicates modest adoption by Japanese vendors,
        and as best as I can tell from the documentation
        everything is passed as TIFF files, which are a nightmare
        to support thanks to the thousands of possible varients
        you'll run into...

    4. CUPS doesn't define required formats, but it does implement
        a lot of them. I'm more than happy to write up a spec
        for this, though...
