What it fixes is (1) the circular dependency that people run into on a
fresh install and the default desktop profile, and (2) the default
dependency on cups that many users do not need.

What it does not fix is the case of users who enable both cairo and
cups useflags on a system where neither gtk+ nor cups is present
yet. But this issue can be discussed separately from whether cups
should be enabled in profiles.
