There are already transport add-ons for a number of network printing
systems, I've used the IPP add-on that's in the tree under BeOS in the past
with a D-Link print server. I've no idea if they work under Haiku but I
can't see why not.

I'd presume all protocols could be implemented as transport add-ons and not
require CUPS at all.
