I would add a third reason (and I think that was also pointed out last
time in <>):

 - IMO a GUI toolkit should not force the user to install a print server

(...and at least last time I had checked it the `cups' option was
disabled by default for all packages).

Also, why should it be enabled by default? (I think that it provides a
more customized print "widget" when printing via, e.g.
`gtk3-demo --run=printing' but this and previous discussion did not
clearly mention that)

I would prefer that it is disabled by default for the 3rd reason.
