I would not group "Scale Patterns" and "Print Text as Black" with "Edge to
Edge". Edge to edge (or full bleed) printing can not be added to a driver
unless it is supported by the printer. Scale patterns, text as black, and
render mode are functions implemented totally in the driver without any
printer functionality. I don't think they belong in UPDF until we start
addressing UI issues.
