Sorry, you're quite right.

Oops, I didn't read it closely enough. OK, so the second element of
the list defaults to TeX-print-command. But there is a default second
element of TeX-printer-list already.

I'd be happy to write some documentation if the situation were a bit
clearer. It seems to me from reading the documentation of
TeX-printer-list again that its default value should be simply
(("Default")), i.e. a single list with only a first element. Then
there would not be two different defaults for the same thing in play,
and it would be clearer to me what to write for the documentation.
