I see very good reasons why the print server should know - they are
device properties and the print server acts as the agent for the
device to any (possibly remote) client using it.

Yes you could hack up a way of placing this information somewhere
else to work around a really dumb print driver/server, but you'd
be better in that case to create server that is aware of
printer settings and behaviour to encapsulate the dumb driver.
