I agree that it would be nice to have standardized job ClassAd attributes to express the job's wishes under various circumstances. However, you can insert your own job ClassAd attributes and reference these in the startd policy expressions, so you don't have to wait around for a standard set of attributes to be defined.

To insert an attribute into the job's ClassAd, simply put a "+" in front of it in the submit file:

+JobWantVacate = False

Then you can evaluate this attribute (as an arbitrary expression) in the startd policy:

WANT_VACATE = (JobWantVacate =!= False) && (...)
