You can't set feeder, dpi, pagesize etc (as RMS said).
You can. Thats done by e.g. the ipad, too.
1. You send out a request for available printers.
2. You receive a list of all printers with their features
3. You present the user the first printer (the last used one, with last used settings, if the printer is still available) and options depending on the printers features and the print job.
4. In most cases you simply press print. Or you select the printer, orientation etc and then print
Thats all it needs.
In fact there are even converters available, which contain a build in cups and provide proper air print/network print, so you can basically convert nearly any printer into a supported printer for MorphOS.
E.g. Recently there was a ipp print server software released for the Raspberry pi. For some basic ipp driver tests, I used my Mac mini as air print interface server, but having a big system running is not the final solution I would like. At least it is good for testing. Using a pi would be one, as I could expand my old hardware for around 40 Euro.
