You might find it more manageable to put those lines into a new file,
say /etc/udev/rules.d/61-libsane-brother-dcp115c.rules. That way A)
60-libsane.rules can still be updated by the package and B) you won't
lose your changes.

udev employs the increasingly common config-directory style. That is,
all files in a particular directory are read in, in order. So 61-* will
apply after 60-*.
