Ok ... I see your point ... this would start to nest attributes which looks
like a rathole.
IMHO the (tiff-profiles-supported) as described in RFC2301 is the most
important thing IPP to define and support. If the client polled for "color
supported" and the server returned a "NO" by definition this would
eliminate Profiles C, L & M.
