[sane-devel] xsane could not recognise pixma:MX710_PRT-MX715

I am using a canon Pixma MX715 with Linux Mint 17.

Downloaded and installed the official canon 
cnijfilter-mx710series-3.70-1-deb and scangearamp-mx710series-1.90-1-deb.

Got the printer working (also wireless) and scanner is recognised in 
Simple Scan 3.12.1 when using USB.
However, I like to use the scanner wirelessly and use some fine options 
of xSane.

When I start xSane 0.998, it will report an error "could not find 
'pixma:MX710_PRT-MX715': function not supported.When I turn the MX715 
off and restart xSane, it will quickly report no scanner found.

My question is: "why?"  since the MX715 seems a MX710 scanner with MX715 
printer combined. Also the official drivers are generic for all MX710 
series, including the MX715. To me it seems that in one or another xsane 
config or register, the model name is not added or incorrect. Can I help 
somehow getting this model added, is there a machine ID that I can 
supply for that?

Best regards,
