I'd like to run it from the scout, and was curious of the technical difference.
Ooma Hardware: Hub/Scout(2) and Telo
As an easy solution, could you use a second pair of your phone cable (possibly the white/orange pair) to carry the signal from the "phone" jack on the hub to a separate jack in the room where the fax lives? That way you would be essentially using the recommended connection, but could still use the scout for voice. Most homes use a multi-pair cable that has either 3 or 4 pairs inside the outer jacket. If you only have one line installed, then the other pairs may or may not even be connected. If they are not connected at the jacks, they also may not be connected at your telephone company interface box. You can connect them there easily yourself. Additional questions, feel free to pm me or post them here.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
