I should have been more specific. (Not enough coffee.) Near the
beginning of the cupsd.conf file there is a section:

# Administrator user group...
SystemGroup sys root

If you change it to:
SystemGroup sys root aaron

then aarom is authorized when you have "Require user @SYSTEM". But
if you do not want to give the user blanked permission, you can
change "Require user @SYSTEM" to "Require user @SYSTEM aaron" just
for that section.

But even if the user has no permissions to change things, they can
change their own default printer - they just can not change the
system default printer.
