    Unfortunately, that's not how the requesting-user-name and
    job-originating-user-name attributes are used in the real world -
    they typically are the authenticated username on the server.

    In the context of IPP notifications, we may want to be able to
    add a printer subscription for a specific destination user name,
    such that an operator (or a user) can be notified when a job is
    printed by another user for him/her.

    So, it's certainly possible that the attribute could contain a
    formal name for an individual, but it is more likely that it will
    be a username on the remote system (or a keyword specifying a
    class of users)
