We have some Oce 31x5s, too, and don't have the PS3 upgrade either. The 'License list' on our configuration sheets looks like:

License list

PCL5                       : configured
PSL2                       : configured
PostScript 3 upgrade       : no license

Presumably your entry for PSL2 (which I presume to be that for PostScript 2) says "no license"? (You don't say so explicitly.)

Later, under 'Settings' : ' PostScript defaults', some other configuration details are given, including the PostScript interpreter version.

I've no expertise in setting up non-PostScript printers with CUPS; I hope that someone else can help you. I'm just in the middle of trying to drive our Oce 31x5s with the CUPS IPP driver - and am waiting for advice from Oce in order to be able to do this.
