This particular issue could also be resolved by introducing an optional
error, so no existing implementations would be broken.

The more pressing issue is how to deal with un-implementable mandatory
DRMAA attributes.   It is best to leave this issue for the next DRMAA


Do you have any questions, clarifications, or comments to add?
