I think there is a cut and paste bug in the new Set-Job-Attributes operation
description.  From the .pdf file that I down-loaded:

The Set-Job-Attributes operation (0x0002) prints a file. 

It looks like you copied it from the Print-Job section.

Now that we have published a spec with the operation id assigned for
Set-Job-Attributes, I see no reason why you couldn't use it:

Changes in v1.1b2 include:

	  name-with-language to match the IPP spec.
	- Added support for unknown value tags in the IPP
	  routines (previously they would be ignored)
	- Integrated GNU GhostScript 5.50 into the pstoraster
	- Client hostname resolution was broken on little-endian
	- Now look at client.conf file for client's default
	  server and printer.
	- The cupsServer() function did not close the
	  client.conf file if it contained a ServerName
	- Added BrowseAllow, BrowseDeny, BrowseOrder,
	  BrowsePoll, and BrowseRelay directives.
	- BrowseInterval 0 disables advertising of local
	  printers, but still receives information on remote
	- New browse polling daemon (for polling servers on
	  different networks)
	- New PPD cache file for faster startup times with large
	  numbers of PPD files.
	- The Host: field was incorrectly required for HTTP/1.0
	- New set-job-attributes operation now supported.
	- The mime_load_types() and mime_load_convs() functions
	  did not close their input files.
