I know that many printer manufacturers are looking for a chance to help
their customers with preconfigurations of drivers.
That's mainly something requested by supervisors and network administrators.
These people are typically driver and installation experts. So they would
like to prepare a customer specific configuration, which all end-users in
that company would use when installing that driver.
It would not be too difficult adding an optional key like "Preconfiguration"
to each feature (independent from any locale), which would fulfil exactly
Do you think these supervisors and administrators would feel comfortable
adding an XML keyword for each setting, which they want to differ from the
printer manufacturers default setting or does that sound unreasonable?
They normally (if we do not prepare something extra for that or printer
manufacturers provide that on their site) would not have the DTD file for
validation. So there is some danger to mess it up. On the other hand a
standard XML editor is quite simple to use.
Tell me your opinion.
