This was in the context of using the gnomeprintui dialog as a "Print
Settings" dialog rather than a print dialog. In that context a "Print
Preview" button would have been out of place.

In the same context, that dialog would not start printing and so it
would not be correct for the default action button to be labelled

However, don't worry - it looks like this idea is a non-starter.
