Hello Richard,
I would recommend to embed the driver informations into CUPS raster file 
as IPP attribute. like Till described it for CPD.

we may should also consider to register at the ICC a Metdata Type for 
Gutenprint driver settings.

I will ask at the ICC about the necessary steps, that we are prepared to 
do in near future.

Best regards
