    I'm all for enums, however, enum attributes are still SIGNED-INTEGER, 4

    Their value range would suggest that "notify-status-code"s are in the same
    space as the other regular IPP "status-codes". For that reason I'd suggest
    that they be encoded the same way as "status-codes" i.e., with two bytes.
    I'm currently using ENUM to encode them. What do others think?

    It's not really obvious how to encode it, either. The operation attribute
    group's "status-code" is a SIGNED-SHORT in a special location. There is no
    attribute tag for a SIGNED-SHORT. "Integer" and "enum" are SIGNED-INTEGER.

    I'm guessing it should be (integer(0x00000001:0x00000415))?
