The current policy documentation lists a table of operations, instructions for creating policies, and presents two ways of using policies. One might interpret this to mean that any operation can be controlled a printer operation policy, however some operations only check the default policy. The request is to add a column to the table indicating whether an operation can be controlled via a printer operation policy.

I think I'd rather just add a note () in the operation name column with a description at the bottom ( = only used when defined in the default policy)
Fixed in Subversion repository.

To make the same change in the web interface, go to the printer's web page, for example "http://localhost:631/printers/LaserJet4000", and choose Set Default Options from the Administration menu button. Click on the Policies link and choose the desired policy from the pull-down list. Click on Set Default Options to change the policy for the printer.
Note that CUPS only checks the default policy for certain IPP operations. Refer to Table 1 to determine whether a particular IPP operation can be controlled via a printer operation policy.
