In Savannah we agreed that in the operations get-job-attributes, get-jobs, =
and get-printer-attributes, if the 'requested-attributes' attribute =
contains values specifying attributes not supported by the printer, the =
printer SHALL return status code 'successful-ok-ignored-or-substituted-attr=
ibutes' and MAY return these attributes in the 'unsupported-attributes' =
group. My question is, if the printer chooses to list the attributes as =
unsupported in the response, which of the following formats should it use =
(suppose the printer doesn't support 'printer-info' and 'printer-location')=
:

attr-tag=3Dvalue-tag-unsupported
attr-name=3D'printer-info'
attr-value=3DNULL

attr-tag=3Dvalue-tag-unsupported
attr-name=3D'printer-location'
attr-value=3DNULL

- or -

attr-tag=3Dvalue-tag-keyword
attr-name=3D'requested-attributes'
attr-value=3D'printer-info'
attr-value=3D'printer-location'
