Don't use the classification stuff, then.  Instead, use lpadmin to
set the default job-sheets setting, as follows:

     lpadmin -p printer -o job-sheets-default=secret,secret

(replace "secret" with whatever banner you need)

You can also set this via the web interface, however you may run
into authentication issues on MacOS X.
