There should be no package iscan or iscan-proprietary-drivers or iscan-firmware in any of our "official" openSUSE projects. I filed deleterequests for all those IScan related proprietary packages, see https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=556097#c9
Please retain at least iscan-firmware, many Epson scanners will not work without it. Without this package the firmware has to be extracted manually from the Windows driver which is quita a hassle.
It is much easier to visit the Avasys web site and download their proprietary packages from them to make Epson scanners which need proprietary stuff work well under Linux.
