What sort of issues with that configuration are you anticipating? MS Domain Browsing issues maybe?

I use CUPS with all Samba implementations I have done. CUPS just needs to know the hostname of the printer to send the print jobs to. Once CUPS is configured properly, it is a simple task to get Samba 
to share the print queue.

I make a few pointers in my presentation:
