I'm still somewhat dissatisfied with the solution to ISSUE 35.

The new text says:
  'document-access-error': The Printer could not access one or more  
documents   passed by reference, i.e., by Print-URI or Send-URI while processing the job.  This reason is intended to cover any file access problem, including file does not exist, server timeout, and access denied because of an 
access control problem.  

Unfortunately, this provides little diagnostic information to the client. How is the client to know whether the problem is that the file doesn't exist, or there's no route to host, or DNS hostname cannot be resolved, permisson denied, etc.?
