[IPP] IANA registry issues noted

Hi there,

I was updating my private copy spreadsheets of the IANA IPP Registry and observed the following entries in the registry where "Reference" information has bled back into the "Syntax" column, with problematic text highlighted in RED:


Name				Member Attribute	Sub-member Attribute		Syntax												Reference
platform-temperature											integer(-273:MAX) [PWG5100.NN]							[PWG5100.21]
finishings-col			stitching			stitching-method			type2 keyword]  [PWG5100.1]								[PWG5100.1]
platform-temperature											integer(-273:MAX) [PWG5100.NN]							[PWG5100.21]
folding-offset-supported(extension)								1setOf (integer(0:MAX) | rangeOfInteger(0:MAX))  [PWG5100.1]	[PWG5100.1]


Attribute						Keyword 		Value	Syntax
finishing-template-supported							1setOf (type2 keyword | name(MAX)) [PWG5200.FIN]

I am aware of a few IPP implementations that generate source code based on the IANA registry. These types of issues might cause problems for such implementations, so I'm reporting them.
