[IPP] Question about PWG 5100.7 and "document-format-details"

PWG 5100.7 defined the "document-format-details" attribute, and one of its children is "document-format".  There is also a "document-format" attribute, which is essential to the proper operation of IPP in general (filtering printer description attributes and so forth).  But the definition of "document-format-details" is ambiguous in situations where "document-format" is not a "packaging" format.

If "document-format" is not a packaging format, but is rather a conventional format such as "application/pdf" or "image/pwg-raster", and "document-format-details" is provided by the Client, but the "document-format" child of "document-format-details" doesn't match "document-format", what should the Printer do?
