    They don't *require* it, however by using a keyword instead of a
    name you are informing the IPP server which type of name is being
    used. IPP doesn't really elaborate on what a user or recipient
    name is, and this ambiguity may make interoperability for these
    scenarios difficult.

    By defining keyword values for the recipient as well as a regular
    name value, you clearly differentiate whether the recipient is a
    single person or a (potentially anonymous) member of a group.
