Let me try to explain what we meant by:
6) An administrator must be able to configure the security options.




Support of http 1.1 is MANDATORY and implementation of TLS/SSL is OPTIONAL.


But some customers may want to have a secure-only printer.


Therefore, an implementor MUST NOT build a secure-only printer, but
MUST allow the administrator (the customer) to be able to configure
the Printer to be secure-only.


Its like requiring TV manufacturers who choose to make a color TV 
set to make sure that that color set also accepts black and white.
We are not allowing color-only sets.


Does this help?


Tom
