Sure you can (GET).  HP has been doing this for years.  A GET on
a URI that identifies the printer returns a representation of the
state of the printer, showing you the queued jobs, any alert, etc..

PUT for the printer itself probably doesn't make any sense.  But
POSTing a document to it would be a simple way to get it to print
that document.

You might use PUT if you wanted to replace a document in the queue
with another one.  Or you could just DELETE the old one, and POST a
new one, but then you lose your priority in the queue.
