No, that's already the intended purpose of the list.  Gutenprint has
the list as the maintainer, but it's by no means restricted to
gutenprint--that's just because the package was intended to be group-
maintained (it's looking for a maintainer if there are any takers,
since I no longer have hardware to test new uploads).

Go right ahead.  When the list was originally set up, the CUPS and hplip
packages were subscribed to debian-printing by myself, but IMO that was
a mistake in hindsight.  It would be best to unsubscribe them if there
are no objections--people wanting to follow these packages should
probably just subscribe to the respective lists and/or packages.  This
will reduce list noise and duplicate mails for those already subscribed
