[IPP] RFC: "job-cancel-after (integer(1:MAX)" Job Template attribute

As requested in today's concall, here is a description of the CUPS "job-cancel-after (integer(1:MAX))" Job Template attribute (added in CUPS 2.0):

job-cancel-after (integer(1:MAX))

The "job-cancel-after" attribute provides the maximum number of seconds that are allowed for processing a Job.  The Printer MUST cancel it automatically if the Job cannot be processed within the specified timeframe. 

The corresponding Printer Description attributes are "job-cancel-after-supported (rangeOfInteger)" and "job-cancel-after-default (integer(1:MAX) | no-value)".

The proposal is to add this attribute to the JPS2 v2.0 specification as a corollary of "job-retain-until".
