A simpler clarification fix would be to delete the word "processed"
in "received, validated, processed, ..."

so that it would read:

In the case of a Print-Job operation, the
'successful-ok' status code indicates that the request was successfully
received, and validated, and that the Job object has been created; it
does not indicate that the job has been printed.
