I agree with all Mike's summary points below.

The selection of an available FaxInJobTicket is based on the Metrics
structure (which Pete worked out).  I don't see any service configuration
issues (for a NON-Cloud binding).

With respect to bindings, there is no other game in town in the PWG
except IPP bindings.  No printer vendor has ever publicly announced
the shipping of an Web Service binding that conforms to the PWG SM

PS - A note of caution about PWG developing so-called "RESTful"
bindings to anything.  There's a religious war going on currently on
the IETF Apps Area WG mailing list about a simple request for a
concise definition of "REST" - one camp admits that there is *no*
simple definition and wants their idol left alone - the other camp is
getting tired of hearing about "REST" that nobody can define - it's
only a matter of time before this escalates to the IESG itself.
