IPP also requires "attributes-natural-language" on every request and
"natural-language-configured" is a default that MUST be overridden on every
request. It's only used when a Printer receives a request in a natural
language it doesn't support.
> It would appear then that the reason for having
'natural-language-configured' and 'natural-language-supported' in the
'printer:' template is mostly for convenience, so users can get to that
information without making an additional request to the printer (and as I
indicated in my previous message, I question how useful that feature really
IPP doesn't have 'natural-language-supported', only
"generated-natural-language-supported". An IPP Printer MUST accept any
natural language and any Natural Language Override, whether the IPP object
supports that natural language or not.
> OK so here are some options I'd like you to consider (1 being my first
choice and 3 my last):
> 1. Do away with both attributes 'natural-language-configured' and
'natural-language-supported' in the 'printer:' template.
> 2. Keep both attributes but make them optional.
> 3. Keep both attributes as mandatory but add 'unknown' as a legal value.
