While I agree it will be useful to refer to this work, I also
believe that printing roles have changed significantly in the
last 12 years, so limiting ourselves to the simple roles in this
document would be a mistake.  For example, there is the assumption
of an organized IT structure in RFC 3805 which is simply not present
in the vast majority of printing today.
