TCP/IP printers attached to z/VSE - please provide feedback

Two WAVV requirements for printing over TCP/IP were raised and get a high voting:
1) z/VSE POWER control of TCP/IP printers
The requirement was raised, because there are no new system printers such as 6262. Nearly all new printers are now TCP/IP connected. The requirement asked also to control (TCP/IP) print output, e.g. if you have a paper jam at page 900 of a 5000 page document, to continue at page 900, instead of the beginning.
I would also see that requirement more general. That is that a z/VSE application connected to the TCP/IP printer is receiving VSE/POWER output.
2) TCP/IP printing from CICS TS
To get some input on how customers use TCP/IP printers connected to z/VSE, I need your help !
I need this information too, to decide for the best solution for z/VSE customers.
-- Are you using TCP/IP printers connected to z/VSE ?
If yes, from batch or online or both ?
-- What is your solution for TCP/IP printing - IBM or vendor solution ?
-- What products / components / functions / platforms are involved to use the TCP/IP printer ?
-- Do you control the TCP/IP printer from z/VSE ?
