in thinking about above, i checked cups.conf and found that,

  <Policy default>
  <Limit Pause-Printer Resume-Printer
  <Limit Cancel-Job CUPS-Authenticate-Job>
  <Limit All>

are in 'deny,allow' order, rest are 'allow,deny' order.

so this makes me wonder why an order of 'allow,deny' would not be used
in all cases.
