Can I use the iPF8300 without the printer stand?

Question: Is it possible to locate the printer on a table top or flat surface? I have a set of "flat files", as used by architects, which would have to do double duty and host the printer. I know, the cut sheet basket won't fit and all, but the basic idea is "are 8300s/6300s designed to be mounted only on their stands"?

Answer: Just for the record, I called canon support today and asked them if I could set an 8300 on a table or is the officially supplied stand necessary and they said, "no" the stand isn't necessary. They gave the usual caveat about this being a really big device and a coffee table probably won't do.
