cups print dialog defaulting to Postscript...

When selecting 'Print to File' in the CUPS printer dialog box,
Postscript is selected per default.

Many users may not realise that this is disadvantageous until too late
- with all the fonts converted to paths and less easy to open on other
operating systems.

PDF seems a rational default - what reasons are against changing to this?
