The sanitization of the device URI (not showing username and/or password
in log files or other places where device URIs show up for mortal users
to see) is in fact a *feature* that was introduced some time ago (it was
different before), in order to increase security.
Chances are pretty low that you will get acceptance at CUPS.org to
revert that again.
Security is low in any case when printing to an smb://-connected printer
that needs authentication, but there is not much CUPS can do about that.
