In my mind, not much at all.  It just allows this person to do what they
want to do.  If gnome-print really becomes powerful enough, I don't see
why you would want to write postscript instead of use gnome-print. 
Postscript is very powerful though.

I guess I do have one question, does gnome-print support modifying the
tracking, kerning and/or leading?  If not, maybe it needs to go back to
the drawing board and maybe that is why it should allow programs to feed
it postscript.
