I know you've said this before, and I'm sure you had to do that for your system, but it is by no means necessary for all setups. Printing from Wine has always worked just fine out-of-the box for me, and CUPS is NOT set to either publish shared printers or allow printing from the internet. IMO, this is the case for most users, or we would see far more questions here about printing than we do.
