It is a long history. It starts around this
"Enhance handout printing in impress"
Then I noticed this bug
"Can no longer print handouts with customized size and arrangement of
the preview objects"
which leads to the "default" option in the print dialog. So no, do not
remove the "default" option.
That the order cannot be set is an issue for its own, already know on
"Print order (horizontal/vertical) cannot be selected freely when
printing multiple slides with Impress"
"New print dialog ignores Order setting when printing handouts in Impress"
As far as I understand the presets, it was intended, that the user
cannot alter these. That does not mean, that a change of this behavior
is not possible.
I have not tried it actually, but in "default" mode, setting the order
