Would like to install Printers asynchronously - New Print drivers take many minutes to install

I would like to be able to install all print drivers asynchronously.  Meaning for the very first time a user logs onto a system and creates a Windows profile, instead of staring at the progress bar and our splash image for 5 to 10 minutes... continue installing print drivers in the background.  We can do this for application launcher, why can't we do this for printers?

At least they could get to the desktop and start working, and eventually in 5 or more minutes the printers are installed.  The biggest delay in establishing a new windows profile is getting printers added to the system.  The sltrace file can show 5 or 6 minutes for an HP Color Laserjet m553 for example.
