If anyone knows Til Kampeter, he'd be the guy to ask as he's heavily involved 
in OpenPrinting.  

From memory, there was a plan to define a standard for defining printer 
features, their related GUI elements, and how to dynamically build the print 
dialog from a feature list exported from the print driver.  Sort of like a 
SANE for printers, if any of you know that.  Then there would be consistant 
dialogs across the platforms that implement the spec.  

This is all long-term planning stuff, like the PDF move, that may take a 
couple of years to bring to fruition.
