Clarification on the following would be appreciated. I'm trying
to tie the new Protocol document (ipp970702.doc) to the Model
document. My comments are preceded by "XDR>".
319 2.2.2 Parameters
323 attributes, some do not. All parameters are defined in section 5.
XDR> Its not clear to me what are "parameters" in section 5. There are
XDR> not explicitly identified. The protocol document mentions
XDR> "parameter groups" which are not mentioned in the Model document.
723 188.8.131.52 Print Job Request
XDR> It is stated that the "document-name" is MANDATORY. Line 735 states
XDR> that the simplest Print-Job request consists of just the Document
XDR> Content and nothing else. Is this a conflict?
974 5.1.8 Cancel Job Operation
XDR> It is stated that only the job originator can cancel the job. How much
XDR> credibility are you placing in the validity of the
XDR> "job-originating-user" value. This validity should be tied into the
XDR> different security methods used and the differences should be stated.
XDR> In order to truly accomplish this, the user has to be authenticated,
XDR> which leads you down the path to talking about security issues.
XDR> should this be moved to the IPP Security document?
1043 "The requested attributes of the object with their current valuesSHALL"
XDR> I'm not sure you meant to have "SHALL" at the end of this sentence.
1051 A Printer MAY be configured, for security reasons, not
to return all attributes that a client requests. It may
1052 even return none of the requested attributes. In such
cases, the status returned is the same as if the Printer
1053 had returned all requested attributes. The client cannot
tell by such a response whether the requested
1054 attribute was present or absent on the Printer.
XDR> What is the rationale behind this policy of not
XDR> guaranteeing a return? It would be nice to guarantee this
XDR> return so the client could dynamically build the UI querying
XDR> for all of the supported attributed on a printer.
1068 4. If the client supplies an attribute group keyword that is
not unsupported, ...
XDR> Did you really mean to use "not unsupported" ?
1248 ... the "printer-job-template" group in order to get the
XDR> Should "printer-job-template" be printer "job-template" ?
