Well, my vote goes for

* installing hpijs as default; I prefer to have all important drivers
installed so I can use them directly even if I'm without net access.

* it might be acceptable (but a lot of work and trouble for a small
gain? not sure...) to not install hplip by default and just give a
dialogbox somewhere "hey, you just configured a hp printer; <click here>
if you want to install the package hplip with some tools for managing hp
