The following are Apple's comments for the IPP INFRA specification:

1. Global: Client, Server, Jobs, Documents, Printers, and IPP Binding should be capitalized.

2. Abstract: "through Cloud solutions" is awkward, maybe "Cloud-based solutions"?

3. Section 1, line 285: "IPP does not define" should be "RFC 2911 does not define"

5. Section 3.1, line 384 (item 1): Capitalize "job template"

6. Section 3.1, line 397: "Therefore, this ... specification should define ..." - alternate wording to avoid lowercase "should"?

7. Figure 2: "AAA Framework" in option C is lined through

8. Table 1: First column should be titled "Reported printer-state"

9. Section 4.1.9: "printer-static-resource-ready" should be "printer-static-resource-k-octets-free", "printer-statis-resource-supported" should be "printer-static-resource-k-octets-supported"

16. Table 3: 'pending-held' state is missing from the table.

17. Section 4.5: Add section reference to the "document-access" operation attribute.

18. Table 5: Create-Job-Subscriptions should be a MAY for the Proxy

19. Table 7: Missing "oauth-authorization-server-uri" attribute, new Note 3 for Infrastructure Printers (CONDITIONALLY REQUIRED for Printers that support OAuth) and MUST NOT for Proxy.

20. Table 7: "printer-static-resource-supported" should be "printer-static-resource-k-octets-supported"

21. Table 8: "printer-static-resource-ready" should be "printer-static-resource-k-octets-free"

23. Section 5.x: Remove underlining for "section 8.3 of [RFC2911]"
