How about saying that for the 'client-error-bad-request (bad syntax), that
IPP object doesn't return the "status-message" attribute, if supported,
this is a developer error. Then for bad syntax it doesn't matter what
is returned in the bad syntax error response, since there aren't any 'text'
attributes in the error response. So may as well return the
on a bad syntax error response.
