There is a design bug and you continue to ignore it. We have seen
similiar bug reports regarding colour management components of you ignored
by you for months. It seems I can only escalate to get them fixed, as
usual. So far to your first sentence in this reply.

You want that functionality. So it is up to you to do the real work
and fix it, especially in your own code. I agree that the desired
funtionality is not yet in CUPS available. But I invested already serious
time on a alternative approach, through discussion, designing and
mentoring including a student spent a GSoC project on an alternative
and standard conforming path. That path is open for Gnome too.
