This has been discussed recently on ubuntu-devel. I think the decision
remained that
by default the web interface of CUPS is disabled entirely, not just for
non-root. This is
an ubuntu wide decision we will not (cannot) change it for xubuntu even if
we don't have
a printer gui.
But getting around that as you documented is a solution.
