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 
should work.

Kind regards
