In what version of Emacs are you looking?  In EMACS_22_BASE,
dos-w32.el sets up print-region-function to invoke
direct-print-region-function, which uses default-printer-name, and
print-region-function is called from lpr.el.  Similarly with ps-print
and ps-print-region-function.  Perhaps the only thing we should do is
disable the default value of printer-name set by lpr.el.
