Please could someone give me a brief opinion on using the workflow foundation (or other .net3.0 components embedded within printers or mfp's

Most Printer/MFP vendors use Java (Jscribe etc) some are starting to use .net, C, filters (StdIn, Stdout).

I'm wondering if you can use these workflow foundations, presented as web services to interact with LDAP, AD HID's etc. To control the touch screen, for example to present workflows, permitted functions etc based on authenticated user.

I'm not a developer, as may guess.

Thanks
