There are several "special" function of my printers (networked copiers, actually) that need to be supported, and I don't believe the CUPS driver contains this support. Things like sending the printout to a storage box on the copier that waits for someone to walk up and print it (Mailbox/Document Server), duplexing, hole punching, stapling, N-up, etc. I have not tried the CUPS printer drivers, yet, so perhaps these features get passed through, but some of those features aren't even present in the PPD file that I use for CUPS.
