    I agree that manual duplex and watermarks are driver features so they
    probably don't need to be specified in the UPDF. I would put N-Up in this
    category too. You can argue that some printers implement N-Up with a
    command, but some printers may do watermarks with a command as well.

    If a printer did implement watermarks or N-Up it would probably be with a
    PJL (or some other job language) command and therefore could probably be
    specified using one of the generic job language controls.
