If the factory settings values are only RECOMMENDED, then it will be
impossible for a client to determine what values an administrative client
can use in the Set-Printer-Attributes operation for those printers that
don't implement the feature.

I think that the factory settings are REQUIRED if the printer supports
Set-Printer-Attributes.

The Set spec add the "factory-settings" (boolean) operation attribute to the
IPP/1.1 Get-Printer-Attributes operation, so that a client can get the
factory settings when querying the Printer.  Such information is needed by
the Set-Printer-Attributes operation in order to validate a
Set-Printer-Attributes operation.

ISSUE 13: If a Printer supports the Set-Printer-Attributes operation, should
the "factory-settings" Get-Printer-Attributes operation attribute be
REQUIRED for a Printer to support as well?  

Alternatively, if a Printer supports the Set-Printer-Attributes operation,
should the "factory-settings" Get-Printer-Attributes operation attribute be
RECOMMENDED for a Printer to support?

We can update section 10, Conformance requirements, and section 5.3
"factory-settings" operation attribute description accordingly.
