We made a decision in the beginning of the MIB work that we were not
going to do all the work necessary to include finishers. We simply could
not bite off that (and several other things including fonts) and ever hope
to
get done. The thought was that a separate MIB would be created to cover
finishing since it can potentially be even bigger than the printer
(physically
as well as in complexity.) Since that time, the Large Mail Room operations
group created a LMO MIF which included at least some finishing. As far
as I know, that MIF was never swizzled into a MIB.

It is simply too late to re-open that can of worms and do anything more
with finishing.
