Two more requirements for whatever the print job transfer format will be:

 - Scalability (for N-up, or if the printer has not the requested paper
 - Possibility to separate and arbitrarily reorder the pages (for N-up,
   booklets, manual duplex, partial printouts)

The first requirement of my initial answer (job ticket
accompanying/embedding) is no problem, one simply zips the job ticket
file and all document files which make up the job together

PDF seems to fulfill all the requirements ...
