My thinking was the other way around; that a dumb, generic device
(visor) would never work with a more specialised driver (pl2303).

The opposite could work though as the pl2303 setup commands would simply
fail, but the bulk in/out layout appears to be the same and should work
with a dumb device.

I double checked just now with a pl2303 HX device, and I can't seem to
get anything through with the default settings (visor or generic
driver) in loopback.

Note that there's another Samsung SPH-I500 Palm OS phone handled by
visor as well.

Let's see if we get some feedback first. But unless someone thinks my
reasoning above is flawed we could try removing it from pl2303 a little
later either way.
