I don't think so. Why are any printer-settings in lts.conf? There you
tune the hardware. 

To get/set the address of the printer which should be used on a special
client is only a problem of thin clients. Fat clients or stand alone
machines set the printer for all users. Using ~/.cups/lpoptions is only
a trick.
