My notes from Fairfax meeting...
Masinter: Printer scaling points to allowing non-integers.
Eg, you might want to say make my output 12% bigger, and there
might be no easy way to come up with a good set of units on the
fly without considerably complicated understanding of how the
device will deal with that request. Should maybe even allow floats
(ie, non-negative, non-complex numbers).
Masinter said he'd return the issue to Waters for rewrite.
Interacts with Character Proposal.
RWK: Want less generic names. eg, maybe STREAM-xxx.
