[Printing-architecture] cups-browsed: how to treat rejecting queues?

When cups-browsed creates local queues to forward jobs to remote queues,
I wonder how it should treat queues that are not accepting jobs? The way
cupsd used to behave was to copy the remote printer's state to the local
implicit queue, but cups-browsed is not structured in that way: it
doesn't update the queues it creates.

The problem with the current behaviour is that the GTK+ print dialog
will allow a queue rejecting jobs to be selected.
