The Model suggests that the Printer return a response before it even accepts the document content (see sections 16.4.8 and 16.4.9). The Job Object Attributes are returned only if the IPP object returns one of the success status codes. Then the job-state

would always be "pending" or "pending-held".

I think it's right. You can have a mixture of 'type3 keyword' and 'name' values for "job-hold-until-supported", for example.

A related question that I wonder about is this: when checking for equality or containment (e.g., "IF NOT in the Printer object's 'job-hold-until-supported' attribute ...") is value type considered? Is a value of type 'nameWithoutLanguage' considered equ

al to a value of type 'nameWithLanguage' if the default language for the context of the 'nameWithoutLanguage' value is the same as the language explicit in the 'nameWithLanguage' value? Can a 'name' match a 'keyword'?
