[IPP] Error in Production Printing Set 1 (5100.3)

While going through the IPP registration one last (!) time before we send another round of updates to IANA, I noticed that the "force-front-side" Job Template attribute has inappropriate -default and -supported registrations.

The "force-front-side-default (1setOf integer(1:MAX))" attribute should not exist. Like "overrides", the only default that makes sense is to omit the attribute.  Similarly, the "force-front-side-supported (rangeOfInteger(1:MAX))" should really be a boolean to indicate that the attribute is supported.

Sadly the only place this is defined or talked about is in Table 1 (Page 18) - there is no explanatory text and both attributes are not included in the IANA registration section, although they did make it into the IANA registry, probably when Ira updated the registration info originally...

So, does anyone support the current definition of "force-front-side-default" or "force-front-side-supported"?  If so, how do you deal with having a default value?  If not, would there be any objection to including this in the list of errata for 5100.3 and fixing the corresponding IANA registrations?
