Still not quite right: the "other" seems exclusive of 631, but in the multiple ports case, 631 might be included.

Here's another try:
It is REQUIRED that a printer implementation support HTTP over the IANA assigned Well Known Port 631 (the IPP default port), though a printer implementation may support HTTP over port some other port as well. In addition, a printer may have to support another port for privacy (See Section 5 Security Considerations.
Note: even though port 631 is the IPP default, port 80 remains the default for an HTTP URI. Thus a URI for a printer using port 631 MUST contain an explicit port, e.g. "http://forest:631/pinetree".
IANA has assigned Well Known Port 631 to the default IPP port number. An IPP server listens on port 631 unless explicitly configured to listen on one or more ports instead of, or in addition to, port 631. If the port is empty or not given in an "ipp" schemed URL, port 631 is assumed.
