Section 4.2.4 says:

This attribute is relevant only if a job consists of two or more
documents. This attribute MUST be supported with at least one value

It should say:

This attribute is relevant to jobs consisting of one or more
documents. This attribute MUST be supported with at least one value

Notes:

Per consensus of the IPP working group in the Printer Working Group, the "multiple-document-handling" attribute *is* applicable to single-document jobs since it is the only common attribute that can be used to request copy collation.

The other collation attribute ("sheet-collate" from RFC3381])interacts with "multiple-document-handling" in some non-obvious ways and requires clients and printers to support two different attributes for simple collation. The "sheet-collate" attribute also does not address how finishing options are applied to copies while "multiple-document-handling" does.
