Manufacturers simply aren't going to fix their firmware, particularly
for older devices (read: are already on the market).  And it's
possible that a firmware fix wouldn't even be enough, since printers
would need more memory to buffer the entire image rather than just
reconstituting it one row of blocks at a time.  There's also the added
testing expense.  Phones and cameras don't generate progressive JPEGs,
so printer, TV, etc. manufacturers don't have any real incentive to
support them.  The manufacturers probably don't even write their own
firmware; they contract it out.

Progressive JPEGs are nice for displaying big images in browsers over
slow links (which my 1500/368 DSL qualifies as).  I admit that they're
easier for me in that context.  But given the confusion this is
causing, and that it requires non-trivial knowledge (and tools) for
people to fix after the fact, I'd argue that this should be revisited.
