But anyway, the composite (light source + sensor) response of a scanner with CCFL lamps (which typically have rather tri-band phospors, and not broad-band F8-like ones), even if combined with RGB filters with smooth, broad-band shapes, is IMO far-off D50/colorimetric either.

Very possibly, but it's up to the manufacture as to what sort of light source, and what sort of phosphor to use, so between the light and the filters, it is possible to get it to work reasonably. When you're using LEDs, it's pretty hard to avoid it being narrow band.
