You have still not proved that accounting is going to be an issue;
You need printer support for accurrate quotas and accurrate
accounting.  Any other approach is just a failed attempt at feeling

I guess "resource management" is another new topic that I do not
understand.  I wonder what resource you are managing here, and "etc"
really does not cut it as a complain.

Note: we do have a postscript driver.  If it such big of an issue for
offices that want to have "etc" features in place, just disable
anything but the Postscript driver (I guess Postscript is very magical
in this regard, because it can do a lot of "etc").
