Hello Petter,

Thanks for the ready-to-use header!  

One question I need to ask is, how do we define a "must start before"?  

Here, CUPS must always be started before Samba, so that Samba can find
all printers offered by CUPS.

Other than that, the above looks good; we indeed only need the network
and syslog to have a decent environment to run CUPS.

Once the above is clarified, I will gladly commit the headers to CUPS.
