Section 5 says:

5 Example definition of a collection attribute

   In some printing environments, it is desirable to allow the client to
   select the media by its properties, e.g., weight, color, size, etc.,
   instead of by name.  In IPP/1.1 (see [RFC2911]), the "media (type3
   keyword | name) Job Template attribute allows selection by name.  It
   is tempting to extend the "media" attribute syntax to include
   "collection", but then existing clients could not understand default
   or supported media values that use the collection value.  To preserve
   interoperability, a new attribute MUST BE added, e.g., "media-col
   (collection)".  The following subsections contain a sample definition
   of a simplified "media-col" attribute.  The definition follows the
   rules in section 3.

   in the IPP Production Printing Attributes - Set 1 [PWG5100.3].


Notes:

Add normative reference to PWG 5100.3 which defines "media-col".
