You could try making symlinks using hotplugd(8) attach and detach scripts, but I'm not sure they get called for USB printers (haven't tried)

of course they will be called. add usbdevs | grep command to the attach script to make a proper symlink.

Hotplugd and usbdevs were the right tools for this job.

For the archives here's how the dynamically updating symlink can be done for USB device: printers fall into class 0 (generic) and with the second parameter to the hotplugd's attach script one is able to get the device's name and model by using usbdevs -d.

Thanks for all who responded.
