And the privacy/security research done here:


FWIW, it's worth noting we want MDNS discovery to work even in public areas, and to that end have made sure Avahi does not publish private information by default.

+1. This makes even more sense with CUPS-1.6 (already released).

CUPS-1.6 has dropped support for CUPS Browsing protocol in favour of DNS-SD, which makes (Avahi) the only method for "automatic" network printer discovery on Linux.
