I mean, is it true that any IEEE-1284.3 can hang off of a
daisy chain, or only a cerain unusual devices specifically designed
for this purpose (for example, could I hang random printers off of
such a daisy chain)?

>(It wouldn't even be source compatible.)
The mismatch would be a compiler warning, not a compiler
error. The old code would compile and continue to work.
