I don't think this is right:

job-hold-until (type3 keyword | name)
IF NOT a single 'keyword' or 'name' value with a length less than or equal to 255 octets, REJECT/RETURN 'client-error-request-value-too-long'.

Suppose the object receives a request containing a "job-hold-until" attribute containing a 'text' value one octet long. The object returns 'client-error-request-value-too-long'? Intuitively, that doesn't seem right, since the request is not too long.

This problem repeats itself in other tests in the guide that combine syntax and length checks in the predicate.
