LSB-"compliant" (FSVO 'compliant') printing drivers are certainly a 
problem. That said, it's a problem that I'd rather tackle with re-
packaging, upload to non-free, or any other more Debian-specific method. 
In this specific case, there's at least some part that comes in LGPL 
source form.

The Debian Printing Team welcomes all interested parties :-)
