Subject: IPP> Handling of invalid "request-id"

Suppose the Printer object, while parsing an IPP requests, fails to =
validate the "request-id" in the incoming payload (because the packet =
was incomplete or because the value is not between 1 and 2**31-1). The =
documents indicates that the Printer object should return a =
'client-error-bad-request' status code. That's fine; now my question: =
What request-id should the Printer object include in the response (I'm =
assuming that responses with error status codes must also include =
version, request-id, charset, etc.)? Should 0 be used to handle this =
cases?
