I'd like to keep main CUPS package is same as upstream.
So the real question is, why not include the vendor provided files in
upstream cups in the fist place. At least it should be offered to them.
I'm not CUPS upstream, but IMHO upstream authors don't want to have
so many printer specific files, because their target is to create
good printing system base (and mainly for MacOS X).
So they looks want to delegate printer support to another softwares,
such as foomatic or printer vendor's.

In any case, one could use a command (one can imagine apt-driver
install , i.e. apt-driver install hpdeskjet640C ) to download and
install CUPS files in the CUPS server .
