Definitely not for 1.7 - I simply don't have the time to complete it.  And at some point in the (hopefully near) future it will be unnecessary since we'll have a "native" IPP Everywhere rendering pipeline that does not depend on PPDs.

I just created a cups.org bug to track this, since I didn't previous have one:

Whoops, my bad.  Yes, I guess I already made that change... :)
