I believe you are correct ( 0xc1ff erroneously contravenes specifications).

I looked at the LMC1992 data sheet, here is what I surmise:

1) The mask must be at least eleven consecutive bits long, or the
   LMC1992 is left in an intermediate state, and restarts the sequence
   when there is a break in the mask. Think of the Mask as an enable
   (Six usable 11 bit Masks. eg. 0011111111111000, 0000011111111111)
   (Five usable 12 bit Masks)
   (Zero usable Masks less than 11 bits long)

   Note that it may be possible to send two (or more) 16 bit Masks that
   act as a single 32 bit Mask.
   ( 0000000000011111, 1111110000000000 )

2) The first two Mask bits are a device address. The last nine bits
   are register bits. Any bits between the first two and last nine are
   lost when the Mask is longer than eleven bits.
