IPP's URI type is pretty clearly defined with a maximum size of 1023 octets.  I believe this came from the original "ipp" URI scheme (RFC 3510), so perhaps we can just remove this line since I am not aware of any IPP clients that support "ipps" with this limitation...

This is good and appropriate IETF LC feedback, thank you!
