~sigh~ Why do you have to try to make it out to be a bigger issue than it is?
All I am asking for is the addition of the USB id of a known printer/scanner
device such that it's permissions will be set appropriately?
There is no "ongoing maintenance" of such a task. You do it once and be done
with it. As Ron Popeil says, set it and forget it.

That's not even necessary. If others happen to have a printer they can identify
as not being in the list of IDs then it's a simple matter of just reporting it,
as I have done and asking it to be added.
Again, I understand your lack of enthusiasm for binary-only drivers. I support
that lack of enthusiasm and share it. But I don't believe in making users
suffer unnecessarily for the short-sightedness of a hardware vendor.
