The ipp-attribute-fidelity MUST be supported at the IPP Printer. (there is
no IPP server)  There is an implication for a request to a server that does
not support any job template attributes. A print request will be rejected if
a client sets ipp-attribute-fidelity to true and selects some job template
attributes.  This is the way ipp-attribute-fidelity is supposed to work.  To
have consistent behavior the ipp-attribute-fidelity must be supported on all
IPP Printers.

Hi ,
    the draft has this to say about attribute fidelity -
""ipp-attribute-fidelity" (boolean):
     The client OPTIONALLY supplies this attribute.  The Printer
     object MUST support this attribute.  The value 'true' indicates
     that total fidelity to client supplied Job Template attributes
     and values is required, else the Printer object MUST reject the
     Print-Job request."  But Job Template Attributes are optional at
the server as well client. So  is their any implication  implication of
"MUST support this attribute" for a server which is not supporting Job
Template attributes.

Thanks
Manish
