Well.. The Laserwriter II was also based on a Canon SX engine, which was 
the engine for the LaserJet II. My wife still uses a LJ II or III, and 
I've sold LW II printers and parts for well over a decade. Wikipedia 
describes the lineage:

(probably an entry for neXt...)

Point being, calling all these "a LJ II" is a plausible term of 
convenience, as LJ II's and III's were the most common of the printers
