What about directly printable types of files? "Open with printer"
doesn't make much sense :-) "Open with lpr"? Neither sounds as good as
"Print to default printer" Or would that(printing) need to be handled
completely separately? 

It seems to me to be something mime-system related and therefore
sensible to be handled in the mime system... although I guess it would
be just as easy to create a nautilus mime-action for all printable
files, it just doesn't seem as correct.

just my 2 cents.
