Perhaps we can use something in section 4 like the following:

Access Rights: The authenticated user (see section 9.3 of [RFC8011]) performing this operation must be either a User permitted to create Print Jobs or an Operator or Administrator of the Printer.  Otherwise, the Printer MUST reject the operation and return 'client-error-forbidden', 'client-error-not-authenticated', or 'client-error-not-authorized' as appropriate.

That mirrors the wording from other operations defined in RFC 8011 and other places and makes it clear that the operation is provided for Users that want to print.


(As for the format debate, I always have used the PDF versions for review because Word does not preserve the layout of text - local fonts and margins for your last used printer will mess things up every time...)

Prehaps rewording to “  … Attributes operation [RFC8011] except that the response can be filtered based on the most authenticated user and to effect this, the operation can prompt a sequence to authenticate the user.” Or something like that.

The ‘odt’ format is not compatible with , at least, my version of MS Word to the extent that opening it in MS Word produces a incorrectly displayed document subject to extensive editorial comments. The Process states “ Internal working versions of PWG documents should be available in an agreed upon, widely available word processing format, to provide for collaboration between document editors and contributors. For example, Microsoft WORD and HTML are common
