It is an error. The status code that makes the most sense would be
"client-error-bad-request'. We can add the check for "application/ipp" to
the Implementer's Guide. Ok? I don't see any need to change the Model and
Semantics document and/or the Encoding and Transport document.

Hi,

What should IPP Printer Object do when it receives a request
with Content-Type other than "application/ipp" ?

I assume if Content-Type is not received then IPP Printer Object
can assume "application/ipp" as the default Content-Type. Am I correct ?

I would appreciate your help and thanks for your time.

Thank You,
Sudarshan Ganapathi
