Are you sure about this? I mean, I can see you point to
a certain extent, but wouldn't it be advantageous for an
IPP server implemented as a front-end on a generic platform
to be used as a multiplexor to several Printers and Jobs?

On the other hand, if the HTTP request header takes precedent,
then why are we specifying printer-uri/job-uri at all at the
IPP protocol level? Aren't we asking for trouble when the
HTTP request header and the corresponding IPP attributes don't
match (with regard to interoperability)?
