Actually, we did say that an IPP server must support IPP AND HTML because
if HTML is optional, then a client which expects HTML, must have a fallback.
If  clients must have a fallback to IPP, then no server need have HTML.


I think the primary issue is whether a server gives exactly the same
information and capabilities via IPP and HTML.
