Although the IPP encoding is, in theory, transport independent. In fact, it
depends on HTTP chunking. With an alternate transport, we would have to
solve the chunking problem. It would be more efficient if the document data
were the only part chunked, but that would require a change to the encoding
So, at this point, I don't endorse separating the two documents.
