Printing DBs by service name, not printer name

I'm wondering, why are our printing databases (for things like the print
queue) indexed by service name, rather than printer name?

Doesn't this mean we will get 'weird stuff' happening if we have two
names for a printer?

I'm getting some very weird behavior where printer name is based on %m,
with some uninitialized data being output back the the client.
