Printers sophisticated enough to support the Document object are probably going to support PDF...

I started adding some text, and then it occurred to me that the value of "job-pages-per-set" has to be, or ought to be, an exact multiple of the total number of pages in the Job. I updated it thus:
The RECOMMENDED "job-pages-per-set" Job Template attribute specifies the number of input pages that constitute a set for finishing processes.  The value of "job-pages-per-set" must be a multiple of the total number of pages of all Documents in the Job. For example, if a Client submits a 14 page PWG Raster Format [PWG5102.4] Document for printing that actually contains two copies of four duplex pages each, the Client could specify a "job-pages-per-set" Job Template attribute with a value of 7, a "sides" attribute with a value of 'two-sided-long-edge', and a "finishings" attribute with a value of 4 (staple) to have the Printer staple two Sets of four sheets. Figure 4 shows a graphical representation of this example.


That sentence I added makes clear how the pages taken from one or more Documents in a Job relate to the value found in this attribute, assuming there isn't some way that finishings could be set per-document in a Job. (Hoping that isn't possible...)
