I mean they are standalone in that a user can walk up to the device and send a fax or copy a document using the plastic shell o the device. They are used in my office in this manner pretty much every day. Just because they are able to be controlled from a remote computer doesn't mean they will be set up so. It seems a bit arbitrary to me for a device to succeed or fail based on whether the user plugs a network cable into it.

Multifunction products that includes either printing or scanning functions
have #2-type connectivity -- either single PC or network. So in my
straw man, they would be required to extend the functionality of their
control utilities to cover their fax and copy functions. I don't see how
those fax and copy functions are "standalone". They use the same hardware
and underlying "engine" software as the scan and print functions.
