Agreed, both in thanks to Ira and in questioning the need  to avoid  XML.  I think  the point  was   made   at the f-2-f  that a low end machine  did not necessarily need an  XML  interpreter but,  given sufficiently  concise  messages, could  decode the XML as strings. This would need  to be  tested against  some  actual examples.
I  would  like to throw  in   one more thought, since we are thinking  MFP these days, and that is  a possible variation of the ticket  for  scan jobs/images.

Ira, great work. Thanks for forging ahead on this. I feel we at least need to test consensus on your rationale for not using XML encoding. Especially the part that says web services is not feasible for CE devices. Aren't they putting web services in light switches these days?

Hi folks,                                           Monday (10 May 2004)

[For review at the next PWG face-to-face meeting in Vancouver, BC,
during the Consumer Electronice BOF on Thursday (27 May 2004)]

I have just posted an initial draft of a non-XML, string-encoded 
PWG Simple Job Ticket at:

Please read the SJT/1.0 example in Appendix D (see below) and the brief
ABNF in Appendix C before reading the body of this document.

Please send comments to the 'pwg at' mailing list.

- Ira

[PS - Jerry - I cut and pasted the cover page style and boilerplate from
Harry's most recent PWG Process 2.0 draft - please point out any errors
- the boldface didn't cut and paste in titles such as 'About IEEE' and
the PWG graphic isn't there - those will come in an MS Word-based draft]

[PPS - I created a subdirectory 'ce' under '/pub/pwg/BOFs' for CE stuff]

[example SJT/1.0 JobTicket instance, excerpted from Appendix D]
