The rewording is an attempt to say, in the positive, what URI types must be
supported and by implication that support for the data URI is not required.

Perhaps it should actually say that in the positive :-).  For example,

A printer must support images referenced by a URI [RFC2396] containing a 
scheme name cid [RFC2392] and http [RFC2616], support for other scheme names
is optional. However, support for a URI containing the data scheme name [REF
NEEDED] is not required unless the printer chooses to implement the method
for supporting in-line data given in Appendix B.3.
