Seriously?  Just because Brother provide a binary only driver, you won't list 
their USB id's in the libsane udev rules (so that the USB device will get a 
working set of permissions)?  Who loses out of that?  The poor users, that's

I agree it's a shame that Brother feel a need to provide binary only drivers,
but should the users be the ones to suffer for all of this?

What harm is there in just ensuring your list of USB ids for scanners,
regardless of whether their drivers are binary or not is complete?
