Now that we have a complete architecture and play around with samples, we
see some chances.
One of them is the smart handling of custom media sizes, which is a pain in
the neck in many drivers.
Right now our main schema has some custom media size related attributes in
Basically fine, nothing wrong with that. We can say that a specific tray
can only feed sizes between this and that.
We had some feedback that printers may have similar limitations for duplex
and somebody else said it could basically happen anywhere (printer xxx
can't staple larger than etc.).
Calls for a better solution.
Proposal to start discussion:
We remove the custom media size related attributes from media source and
create one general custom media size element (attributes:
HorizontalMinimum, HorizontalMaximum, VerticalMinimum, VerticalMaximum)
under the media size feature (not the record of the feature). Somebody may
enter some default values there.
The main point would be that everybody can now define dependencies with
Sample: If duplex, override the minimum values.
No schema change required. You can now define a dependency for every
feature, if you like.
