You can (even in a separate document) define an additional MODULE-COMPLIANCE
statement (for example name it : prtMIBFinisherDeviceCompliance) and in that
statement you only list the groups that make sense for such a device.
A matter of getting consensus on in your wg. Finisher devices can then
claim the new compliance instead of the prMIB or prtMIB2 compliance that
they cannot achieve.
Hope this helps,
