Fedora 17 and the brother printer

The Brother printer driver for my printer runs into SELinux problems post-install. Fortunately, the selinux troubleshooter made this a trivial fix:
Code:
semanage fcontext -a -t cupsd_etc_t /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf
restorecon -v /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf
semanage fcontext -a -t cupsd_var_run_t /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf/brmfcj6710dwrc
restorecon -v /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf/brmfcj6710dwrc
The remaining files in the inf folder look like a list of settings that are not changed. The brmfcj6710dwrc file listed above contains settings related to the print job like paper tray, color calibration, print quality, etc. The printer driver also wants write permissions on the inf folder, but only the brmfcj6710dwrc file seems updated in between print jobs.
