What was the justification for this determination? The only argument I've ever heard is that multipart might get hosed up going through proxies. However, we already know from
"Known HTTP Proxy/Caching Problems"
<draft-ietf-wrec-known-prob-01.txt> (10 March 2000)
(see thread at http://www.egroups.com/message/ipp/7102?&start=7086&threaded=1) that sending IPP through existing proxies is a very doubtful proposition anyway.
Or has the group accepted the idea of a multipart response but rejected the MIME encoding?
