Fortunately this can be done!

Have a network scanner (a scanner with ethernet connection)
in an office for several people.

Run the scanner driver (the SANE backend) together with
the saned on an arbitrary server machine somewhere in
a locked server room to have both the driver and the
access permission stuff under full control of the admin
of the central server.

Run the scanning frontend together with the SANE "net"
meta-driver on the individual user's workstation where
it doesn't harm others if one user corrupts his workstation.

By the way:
Printing usually requires interaction, like fetching the printed
pages from the printer...
