Yes, I think that's true.

Perhaps only that the group explicitly specify (probably in a separate
document) how to map LPR onto IPP.

Something like that.  1179 is incorrect in so many places that I
wouldn't want to make it definitive.  The idea is not to add new
features to LPR, but to document how to implement 4.2BSD LPR
functionality in terms of IPP.

It may be early next week.  I'm out-of-town from Friday-Sunday,
attending a design team meeting for the DRUMS working group.
