So?  IPP is just a transport.

I was talking about device drivers, I think you keep getting confused.

My post was a reply to `How do you handle having 100 drivers'.  Here I
am assuming we have 100 different printers, so a 100 different device
drivers are required (that is what people asked me how to handle).

Personally, I can live with Postscript because that is what I have,
but we want to address the mass population.

So they ask me that, I come up with a solution, and you reply with a
transport protocol, who has nothing to do with the imaging system.
