    "This icon is never updated."

Not quite true:

  - it is updated every time you start a new kprinter dialog
  - it is updated whenever you switch away from the CUPS print subsystem and back

I'm not sure if we should implement that on our own, by polling CUPS all the time (this can be quite expensive to a CUPS server in situations where it hosts many hundreds of printer queues).... 

But maybe the dbus interface of CUPS provides status change messages already. Need to check.
