Here's what I think are the reasons:
(1) Getting the defaults from the printer's PPD (note that the CUPS
may configure default settings different from the delivered
(2) Evaluating a set of job attributes - such as duplex printing - the
implementation of which depends of what the PPD defines.
(3) Handling collated copies - depending on the capabilities of the
respective printer (some printers can do collated copies by
others, like many desktop machines, need the print job repeatedly
in for every copy).
