I (thaller@ph.tum.de) set it to Partially since I've got it going @ 360x360 and 720x720 dpi with the uniprint driver. See the More Info link for BJC-6000 upp files.
Currently prints in color at 360dpi or 720dpi on plain paper.
Colors are slightly imperfect but improving.
Support for interesting papers (glossy, photo, transparency, etc) is not available, although the driver author has some ideas.
Andy Thaller also provides a utility program to contorl alignment, cleaning, etc.
The gimp-print-driver supports this model much better than the solutions above. Additionaly, using the CUPS-drivers supplied with the gimp-print-plugin, almost perfect color output can be produced. Small limitations with 6-color printing lead me to choose status "Mostly" for this model.
NB: the gimp-print-plugin also supports many other Canon BJC models - consult the homepage for a complete list.
